Thought this recipe was very different and also extremely GOOD! Put a different twist on shrimp. I usually make shrimp alfredo, and hated to not have a "bread" to go with the salad, but tired of the "usual yeast bread" or roll. This was very tasty!

I got this same recipe off of Prodigy many years ago. It was posted by Patti Anderson who said it came from La Corniche, Martinique. Very good, and a different way to fix shrimp.
