Super easy and really nice presentation. I arranged the shrimps into circle in individual dishes with cooked spinach on top. My friends were so impressed, they thought I had secretly attended culinary school or dating a gourmet cook. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
We had this as a starter and enjoyed every bite! Used Ouzo, and the basil is really nice in this.
this is sooo good! and so easy to make too. i used 1 lb of jumbo shrimp for 2 of us, and sambuca. i served this with my micro rice rissotto, doesn't get much better than this!
