I was really expecting to love this recipe, but it was lacking. It really didn't have much flavor. It was like...boiled in butter shrimp. The herbs never came through. I had plenty of leftovers the next day which I added lots of pepper and tabasco and served over a salad and it was much better. I may try this again minus the pouch and grill it instead.

I made this exactly as posted, and they were pretty tasty. I only had 1 lb. of shrimp, so I reduced the other ingredients appropriately. This was an easy way to make surf 'n turf on the grill will no mess! Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
