    This was a home run!!!! It was so easy and delicious. It was a recipe that you could serve to guests and they would feel like they had been served a gormet meal. I served it over brown rice that I made with my homemade chicken broth, 1 clove minced garlic, a few tablespoons of dry white wine and 1/8 t. saffron. Delicious!!!!

    Have made this several times and is delicious. It has become our favorite shrimp dish and is so easy to make.

    I don't know...this dish was pretty easy to make, but overall, I found the flavor to be completely absent and had to add taste to it through using a lot of lemon pepper and butter. I'll be trying it again and again, with a variety of different seasonings, to give it some much-needed additional "zing". As-is, it's just too light!
