We tried this last night and were disappointed. I added extra hot sauce and extra Old Bay, but it was basically a very bland recipe, little flavor and not a hit with my family.

Finally made this, after having it on my 'To make' list for a while!!! Just as good as I anticipated, very quick and full of flavour. My DH loved it. I added the Hot Pepper Sauce, and actually, I also added some red chilli flakes, coz I was in the mood for a bit of Bite! but not too much, so as not to kill the shrimp, which it didnt. Instead of rice, I served it over taglioni (very thin ribbon noodles), because we have eaten a lot of rice lately and just felt like didnt detract from the dish at all. Thanks, CookinQTGranny!
