    Being from NOLA, it's been my experience that even shell on shrimp cook within 10 min. Has anyone found the cook time to be too long with shell/heads on? I do agree the heads/shell make all the difference in the world as far as taste - so much more umph!

    Absolutely delicious! I modified a bit by peeling shrimp, using Reisling, increased wine to 2-3oz for more 'sauce' and thickened it slightly by sprinkling in flour and stirring well at the end of the simmer time. Also, served this on a bed of angel hair pasta.

    A beautifully seasoned dish, really lovely. I did have to adjust down for one serving, and I used already peeled shrimp, so I carefully made further adjustments for that. I'm looking forward to making this again for my family and friends. Thanks for a keeper, Trinkets.
