Delicious! Very simple ingredients that, when combined, burst with succulent flavor. I used pre-cooked shrimp, so I added them at the end of the cooking time. When the pan looked dry, I added a little more olive oil. My husband and I enjoy seasoning our seafood with Old Bay, which added to the flavor, but wasn't necessary.
