This was great. I made this for my boyfriend on our second date. He loved it and complemented me highly. I can't take all the credit though. Thanks for posting this yummy and easy recipe.
I found this to be very unique! Quite different from anything I've tasted. I appreciated that it was not a heavy sauce! It took me a bit long to prepare, but I had family distractions!? I thought next time I might save some larger pieces of artichoke to add at the end. It would complement the pieces of shrimp. I took it to work and shared it the next day-they really enjoyed it too! I will definetely make it again! Thank you!
