      excellent! I was so excited last week when I saw fiddleheads sold at the farmers' market but hasitated to buy any becuase the only way I know how to cook them is to par-boil then stir-fry with garlic, which the kids absolutely despise (yes, my son actually said he "despise those slimy thing-y".) Not with this yummy fettucini! wow, love all the herb combination, esp the celery seed. A few varations I made: I seasoned the shrimp with salt and some corn starch first. Also, added some mustard seed and left-over corn niblets just for the colour. Awesome! Off I go to get some of 'em "slimy greens". Thank you very much!
