What a great way to stretch 10 oz of shrimp/prawns into a wonderful meal. I made this with cod and whole wheat bread and it worked deliciously. I believe step 2 should mention adding the eggs. This uses very little oil so it can be a very healthy entree. I'm going to try using just egg whites next time. Thank you, Wendy.
