Excellent shrimp dish. My husband and I fixed this shrimp dinner together one evening after we discovered we had accidently left a bag of shrimp out of the freezer. We did not have any of the fresh ingredients so we used Penzeys' basil, oregano, thyme and parsley spices instead. We also added a bit more crushed red pepper flakes to make the dish extra flavorful. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
