While we were eating this I asked DH how he liked it. He said, "I like it." After eating more he said, "I really really like it." So this was a definited winner at our house. Didn't have any parsley and baked it in an 11x8 baking dish. Only change I'll make the next time is to double the topping.
This was super-yummy and so simple!!! :) Thank you so much for the recipe!
FANTASTIC as can be! Definately felt like restaurant quality! definately added more crumbs to each dish...sprinkled more lemon juice...and got my wish! Next time might add Italian seasoning and parm cheese! This recipe certainly did please! By the way, used already cooked shrimp, TRUE! Don't think made any difference as was DELISH too!
