  • Start by getting your ingredients ready. Dice the onion.
  • *Make the roux (heat vegetable oil on medium/high, add flour, stir continuously until oil flour mixture browns). The amount of oil is about equal to the amount of roux required by the recipe. For instance, the original recipe calls for 2 oz of roux. So 4 tbsp oil and 4 tbsp white flour. Set aside.

    I had tried a Shrimp Portafino from a restaurant called Two Guys from Italy in the City of Orange California. Is this Similar?

    I'm so excited to try this as it seems Olive Garden has dropped this from their menu. We were very sad to learn this on our last trip :(

    delicious, made a seafood version, and a nonseafood version using chicken stock. Will make again. It's like having fresh restaurant leftovers at home! Love to eat it despite the 650 calories per tiny serving.

    This is an excellent dish. Someone mentioned using clam juice in place of shrimp stock. I did this and it was awesome. In fact, I order this dish every time I go to Olive Garden. Last time I went all I could think was that I wished I had ordered something else because this was better than the actual restaurant. YUMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!
