This is truly restaurant-quality! Event though I made a few minor changes (one inadvertent), it came out fabulously. I mistakenly added fish base instead of the chicken base, and I chose to use Dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard. I had 8 beautiful colossal shrimps (size 8-12 per pound). They were cooked perfectly! There was a lot of sauce. I served this as a first course on New Years' Day. Two shrimp per person would have been sufficient, and I cut back on the bread a little bit. This is really an impressive dish that is easy to execute. Thanks for sharing this! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
