    John Alving's Note:

    You will want lots of crusty bread to mop up the sauce on this one!

      We love this! I don't have vermouth, so I just left it out. I steamed my shrimp to cut down the fat so that I could double the lemon sauce. Yummy! We have had it twice in the last week. This is a grerat fast supper after working all day. Grab crunchy bread and eat up!

      A very good, straightforward recipe. We esp. liked the relatively small amount of fats required, but I did double the amt. of garlic, as we love it. It was very flavorful, though did not yield much sauce -- which was fine. It was very nice with a mushroom polenta.

      I used 1 lb of shrimp and almost doubled the sauce. Absolutely excellent. Served this is a bowl and sopped up the sauce with a great crusty roll and though about making this again soon!! Made a great candle light and wine dinner for two. Thank you John.
