THIS IS AWESOME DELICIOUS!!! The only thing I changed was instead of 8 oz. clam juice I used 8 oz. chicken broth, 6 TBSP butter instead of 8, about 6-8 garlic cloves (I just LOVE garlic) and I added the green onions towards the end with the shrimp. I had about 21 huge prawns that I chopped each into thirds so there were bite size chunks of shrimp all throughout. I served over white rice. I will definitely make this one a lot. Thank You.
