These are fantastic shrimp. Used white wine instead of sherry, since I had an open bottle, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Served with gluten free pasta for a great dinner. I will make these again. Made for ZWT5 Groovy GastroGnomes.

DH made this and said it was so easy, but I ate it and it IS delightful! I did add a slight bit more oil and seasonings, but that is just because I like the flavors a lot ( personal preference). Nice recipe...than you for posting!! **Made for ZWT5**

Sage, this was an awesome recipe! Quick & super easy. Made just as posted & this was the favored dish of the night. I almost doubled the sauce ingredients after reading another review but am glad I didn't. Maybe unpeeled shrimp soak up a lot more oil & need some extra liquid but I don't do eyeballs & wiggly things, so luckily the amount of sauce was just right for the peeled shrimp called for. Thanks for a great recipe, Sage! Made & enjoyed for ZWT 5 - Ali Baba's Babes.
