Enjoyed this, my cousin and I made it together, and enjoyed it with pasta. Liked the sherry in this, and also the feta. Thanks Lynn, made for ZWT9, Panthers On The Prowl.
*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #77* This was SUPER yummy !! Prepared with 1 pound of shrimp and 1/2 sauce ingredients. DH and I almost polished it off -- just a tad left for somebody's lunch. Very different without any tomato, but the paprika fools the eye with color. I had leftover soft jasmine rice, which soaked up the sauce nicely. Wish I had made the whole recipe ! Thanks for posting, Lynn !
There were 4 of us here to consume this great tasting dish, so I made the recipe as given, although I did substitute 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper for the usual S&P! The combo of herbs & spices gave this a very nice flavor! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
