      Liked this recipe. Be sure to buy raw shrimp, not precooked as they will be overdone. Would use a bit more chicken broth to ensure the sauce stock is ample. Great job.

      The flavor was ok, but the sauce lacked body. The heat was a bit much for me, it seemed to over power the dish.

      Thought this was a good recipe but do feel that the sauce needed something was a little weak.
