"very good! a simple and quick meal. would probably only use 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper next time i make it - 1/2 tsp was a bit too much for my preference."

MY REVIEW

"One of my husband's favorite dishes! I even make this for company. I recommend using fresh shrimp... and don't overcook them or they'll be tough! Cook them just until their pink... only 2-3 minutes. Of course, adding a little extra butter or garlic never hurts though:)"

"I have made this many many times and each time my family loves it! I did, however, roast a pint of grape tomatoes and toss them in at the end. Delicious!!!"
