      This was an unusual addition to the Christmas buffet. YUMMY! I roasted the potatoes an extra 8 minutes, and they came out perfectly. And after we gobbled it all up, I realized I forgot to add the capers at the end!

      This was so easy, but elegant. Definitely a keeper and DH said to put it in our "company" rotation. I only used 1 tablespoon lemon juice and it was just right for us.

      I love this recipe! I made this for a dinner party with my in-laws; everyone at the table kept raving. I had to hold this for quite a while in the oven, so I will say it's a forgiving dish time-wise. I probably roasted the potatoes for an hour (granted, my quantities were all increased to feed a lot of people) and the potatoes did fine - crispy outside and creamy inside. (Halfway through, I covered them loosely with foil.) I did not overdue on the shrimp roasting time; and something magical occurs as the lemony shrimp drippings mingle with the potatoes. This is a flavor-packed, very yummy dish, simple to put together, and we loved the capers on top. All in all, a sure winner.
