Shrimp is delicious.

Shrimp and salsa verde - what's not to like? I tried it as written, and then added a little mascarpone I happened to have handy to the rest of the sauce, heated it and stirred to melt it in and create a creamy sauce - that was very tasty too, and looked a little fancier. Nice with rice. Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
