      It was worth paying $3 for the vanilla bean! This tasted delicious and the fresh vanilla had a lot to do with it. I made this recipe as listed BUT I cooked a chicken breast and added it to the sauce at the end for my picky boy. He really liked it! I also had no idea what double cream is so I grabbed some 10% fat cream. Apparently that had only about 1/4 the amount of fat as double cream!!! It still turned out great though! We had this with brown basmati rice topped with toasted coconut. Delicious! Made for ZWT7. Thanks Annacia! :)

      Wow, was this good. I really enjoyed this special dish. It was quick and easy to make with spectacular flavor. I used your Vanilla Oil recipe to cook the shrimp. It worked beautifully in this dish. The shrimp were delicious, perfectly cooked with a lovely blanket of sauce. The flavor of the sauce was outstanding. All the ingredients blended beautifully together to create a memorable meal. Thanks for sharing Anna. Made for ZWT7 for Witchin Kitchen.
