These were so good! We had them tonight and they came together very easily and were consumed very quickly! After I removed the shrimp to a platter I added a thinly sliced white onion ,extra Tbl of butter,and an extra splash of white wine to the pan. We layered the chipotle shrimp with sauted onion in flour and corn tortillas and topped them with diced avocado and a squeeze of lime. Thanks for sharing it with us Vicki!

Excellent! Took this to a Thanksgiving dinner and everyone raved!They "gobbled" down every last shrimp. I made 1 1/2 times the recipe and topped it with a little extra parsley. Nothing this good should be sooo easy. This recipe goes into my "Book of Special Tricks". Thanks Vicki.

Great prawns. I used mostly olive oil with just a touch of butter. We loved this. So easy, so good.
