Amazingly quick and easy elegant meal for family or special guests! Someone prepared this for me while in New Orleans and served it over a yellow saffron rice! The mix of colors and textures made this spectacular meal one I'll make over and over again! Hope you try it :)

Very Good, elegant comfort food. My fiance said it tasted like Shrimp Scampi "only good", however you describe it, we will definately be making it again. (oh, I haven't used green onion yet, we were out, so i used yellow)
