We had a shrimp boil today with some friends and decided to try your recipe. OMG!!! It was wonderful!! Everyone LOVED it! As it was a spur of the moment thing I used canned tomatoes w/ garlic and onion. Very good!

I served this as a main meal with salad and Lebanese bread to mop up the juices. The ouzo is an inspired addition. I used a combination of fresh and canned tomatoes, and this worked well. Tnanks PetsRus for a flavorsome Mediterranean dish.
