Reviews for North Carolina Shrimp Saute
"Yum, sweet, buttery, salty, all in all delicious! I added an extra clove of garlic and doubled the black pepper."
"I have never made this exact recipe, but do one very similar which I love. I wonder if the amount of green pepper might overpower the delicate taste of shrimp."
"We added a bit more butter to suit our personal taste. FANTASTIC!"
