    2Bleu's Note:

    This is a wonderful sweet and creamy shrimp dish. It makes a great appetizer for a seafood dinner of steamed crab legs and lobster. I (Bird) created this recipe (that I was Inspired by) from a buffet item at Chef Lin's Chinese Buffet in Chattanooga, TN. At Chef Lin's I would grab this up by the bowlful. :)

      Looking at this recipe to make it for the second time. It is sooooo good. This is a really simple recipe and if you follow the directions you shouldn't have any problems. Served it over rice with some asparagus on the side and it really hit the spot!
