I think this came from recipe goldmine but I can't remember as I've had it for quite a while now. please note that the yield is just a guesstimate.

Excellent! I made it last night for dinner. I follow the recipe without any changes and it was a great seafood. What make the difference are probably the bay leaves. Serve over basmatti rice and it was super!!! Thanks Darlene!
