    Fabulous! I added 2 cloves of fresh garlic (We LOVE garlic!) and I coated the shrimp in garlic aioli before the parmesan cheese to get it to "stick" better, served on a bed of greens. The Basil Dressing is to die for! ? My husband loved it!!

    Thoroughly enjoyed a winderful shrimp dinner with your recipe! Easy to make & absolutely delicious, & my other half, who particularly like Parmesan, was especially satisfied! Definitely a recipe to keep around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]

    This was a big hit! I made this exactly as posted, although I made a bed of baby lettuces as a base for the shrimp. While some of the cheese did not adhere very well, there was still plenty to pack it with flavor. What pulled the whole thing together was the basil dressing - it was just fabulous. I could see making the dressing alone for a simple salad. Really, really nice recipe!

    This was tasty and different, I liked the cheese but wished it had stuck to the shrimp more. I used a slightly smaller shrimp and added a little lemon juice to the dressing for more zing. Next time I would add some garlic. I really appreciated how quick it was to make. Made for Best of 2010 Tag
