    I add a little extra cayenne pepper and sometimes Cajun seasoning for a little more spice. We've also eaten it over stuffed clams and it is amazing! Does not reheat very well, the cream and butter get really oily but it's not too bad cold either.

    Overall delicious!! I took the advice of another chef and substituted the onion soup with chicken broth. I also used fat free half and half instead of heavy cream and I added russet potatoes. I'd say next time I'll nix the Thyme....it was a little much.

    I didn't care for this either. Too many spices (onion soup?), this overpowered the delicate flavor of the shrimp. Need to go with less ingredients. Instead of flour, maybe use potatoes, use small amount of water for potatoes and let that be the thickener. Sometimes less is more. sandy
