    Miss Annie's Note:

    This is my copycat version of Paesano's Restaurant signature dish. You will love this garlic shrimp dish. Paesano's Restaurant is on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas.

      Excellente, Miss Annie!!! I have had Shrimp Paesano there, before, and loved it. Okay, tell the truth....are you "moonlighting" as a chef at Paesano's?? LOL! Seriously, this is a wonderful recipe. I wouldn't change one thing about it. Add a little pasta and a salad, close your eyes and you're on the riverwalk! Thanks bunches for sharing this recipe!!

      I have been to Paesano's many many times and this is the real thing. I made it with shrimp two nites ago, but tonite I am making it again with thin sliced boneless porkchops. I also plan to make it with pounded chicken breasts. This is SO easy and absolutely delicious.

      Excellent! Living in San Antonio, I still can't make it Paesano's nearly enough for this dish. Now I don't have to. Fantastic copy-cat recipe. Thanks for sharing!
