What can I say but yyyyuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmyyyyyy. I wanted to take an appetizer to my sister's house for New Years and came across this recipe. Boy am I glad I did. I cooked the shrimp the night before with red, yellow, and green peppers. Some onion and minced garlic. At the end of cooking I added some beer and let it simmer a little. I didn't want rubber shrimp so I didn't cook too long. I took the shrimp out that I needed for the bread and mixed the rest with fettucini for supper that night. I didn't change much, I used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder and I did mix it the night before too and let it sit overnight. I also mixed some garlic in with the olive oil to brush on the bread. I mixed some Old Bay with the mayo that I spread on the bread. It was just salty enough which made me glad that I forgot to sprinkle the kosher salt on the bread. This got rave reviews from those who tried it. This will definately be made again. Thank you Pam for making me a gormet cook for a day.
I made this today as a main dish for a ladies luncheon, and you should have heard the rave reviews!! I put the shrimp mixture together last night, to let the flavors meld. Necessary, I believe. Everyone here wanted the recipe, and it will sure become one of my signature dishes.. I served it with my Bistro Mushroom Soup. Thanks for an outstanding recipe. ps...I added some fine chopp celery, and a pinch of hot pepper flakes.
