POW! What a great shrimp dish! DH told me that if I didn't give this recipe all 5 stars then I have no right to be rating recipes. I would have to agree though, this stuff is very good. I made no subs and no changes, made this as written. Thank you so much for sharing English Rose, it's a keeper. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
