      This was quite a yummy shrimp dish. I used the optional chicken broth rather than white wine and I reduced the leeks to just 1 as my leeks were huge! The next time I make this I would omit the lemon peel and I would like to try it with the white wine too as that would add a nice new dimension. Thank your for sharing your recipe. Made for Fall Pick-a-Chef 2012.
