I made this using 16 large shrimp and there was plenty of stuffing to go around. My husband and I loved this for a quickie, after-work supper. I used garlic flavored breadcrumbs and left out the minced garlic and I increased the Parmesan cheese, doubled it. I served with a heftily (is that a word?) loaded green salad. We really loved this shrimp. I even have leftovers to make the folks in the office jealous when I reheat in the microwave! Thanks Geema :)

Hi Geema; Finally cooked your recipe for the shrimp. The combination of the ingredients gave the shrimp a nice flavorful taste. The 12 minute time was just perfect, as the shrimp were done to perfection. I will be making these again and is on my list of excellent shrimp Thank you for sharing and I am surprised that no one has tried them before. "Uncle Bill"
