I copied a recipe similar to this several years ago from a Gourmet Magazine. I have combined several recipes for Shrimp de Jonghe to my liking. This has the added twist of the sherry and almonds. Almost a Spanish influence. You can either serve this as a starter coarse or main dish. It is a delightful recipe that is sure to please.
