My wife really enjoyed it, and that is how I evaluate most recipes. Basically a zesty shrimp scampi. There are a few notes that you need to be aware of. First, the ingredients call for coriander or flat leaf parsley but the instructions ask for cllantro. I used the parsley but next time I would go for the cilantro for more flavor. Not wrong since they are the same but may confuse some. Also, the instructions leave off the salt and pepper. I don't think it is important when you do the salt, as long as you remember. As for the white pepper, I find that best reserved for near the end. Also, I used beer this time but I am very curious to see what the red wine does.

This recipe was really good! We used red wine (not beer) and served it with with rice. I think this recipe made a generous 4 servings if served with rice (my boyfriend disagrees...he thinks it made 2 servings, but that's because it's hard to stop eating it). It was a very good use of my precious saffron threads. :) Thanks for posting!

Wow! I haven't been generous with five star reviews lately, but this one deserves it. Very easy to make. I bought white wine by mistake, which worked fine. I used cooked, frozen shrimp, which was also a fine option. Amazingly flavorful and nicely spicy. Thanks so much

A delicious combination of flavors. I used beer for the sauce. The only thing I did different was using a finely chopped fresh chili instead of the hot sauce and also sprinkled some coriander on top before serving. I served this dish with baguette and a salad.
