Quick dinner for 2. Great for a date. If you get the shrimp already deviened, dinner's ready in 15 minutes. Quick, and tastes like a restaraunt. Serve with any tossed salad and fresh bread.

This was good, but next time I would leave the red pepper flakes out.

Made this tonight. Very good and easy to make - I added garlic w/the red peppers, since we love garlic, made it even tastier. Had to use dried herbs (basil and parsley); I'm sure fresh would be great. Thanks for the recipe. Always good to see quick shrimp recipes!

Overall a good recipe, it is a bit rich, and while the instructions don't spell it out I added the fresh herbs (parsley, basil) when I added the white wine. I would recommend this dish to a couple, but not anyone with any kids.
