"A fabulous, romantic dish for two - and it's quick and easy! I adapted the recipe from a Junior League of Lafayette, LA recipe; they say that it is the creation of Sous Chef Bryan Richard of Chez Marcelle. The original recipe calls for an entire stick of butter, but I think you'll agree that 3 tbsp. is plenty. If you like Amaretto, you'll love this! It can be served with angel hair pasta, but I like to eat it without so as not to interfere with the delicious flavors."

"I really liked the flavor of this dish! I used pre-cooked shrimp and marinated overnight. Doing it again I would probably use uncooked shrimp so some more of the amaretto can cook off. The result this time was a little too alcoholic tasting."
"This was excellent! The shrimp were perfectly cooked and the sauce is awesome. The only thing I will change next time I make it is to thicken up the sauce a little. We served it with basmati rice. Thanks for posting such a delicious and different recipe."
"Deliciously shrimp food!"
"This was great! I think next time I may marinate it in some more amaretto though so the flavor is a bit stronger but even done the way it says yielded a great delicate flavor and it went really well on top of rice. The slivered almonds also went well on the rice being that they are the same shape and almost size, they gave the dish a crunch factor. The whole dish came together very quickly and I agree that the taste would lead you to believe otherwise. I will definately be making this one again!"
"This is simple. It is so good you would think it took hours to make it."
"This was delicious. I, too, marinated the shrimp for several hours as I needed to get all my prep done by early afternoon. I served it with the angel hair pasta, which we thought was quite nice -- light enough to be nicely complimented by the light butter sauce. It all went together at the end in less than 15 minutes. My DD thought it was very special and should be fixed for company."
"DELICIOUS! I made this for Valentine's Day for my fiance. He *raved* about it! It was delicious. I was skeptical about the flavour pairings, but they were delicious! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!"
"Unusual, yet flavorful shrimp. I love amaretto, so I just had to give this a try. There was a faint sweetness to the shrimp. I would agree that 3 T. butter is perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. I served this with a baked potato and fresh tossed salad. "
"I really liked this dish. It added a very good flavor to the shrimp. In a lot of shrimp dishes you can't taste the shrimp just a lot of spice. I served it over rice that I thought would go better with the shrimp then pasta. I also maranated the shrimp in the amaretto for a few hours before cooking."
