Wow! This was superb. The savory flavor was very unique--just a touch spicy and sweet. I had to make my own sesame glazed walnuts because I couldn't find them at the store, so that was a little labor intensive but worth it. I used sherry cooking wine instead of sherry and I used 3/4 lb shrimp (perfect for 2 people ) of regular size (jumbo was too expensive). I used light mayo (Best Foods). Thanks for posting this Chia!

Outstanding! I made this but only using one lb. of shrimp and didn't serve it on lettuce. It was very quick once I had the sauce made and the shrimp peeled. Served with Recipe #363049 and Recipe #353198. Very delicious meal.
