This is a wonderful dish and guilt-free too for those who are watching calories! I did not have fresh shrimp, so used what I had at hand : petite shrimp, canned chopped clams. The flavor of the dish is superb! My husband loved it and helped himslef with seconds!
Loved this! I actually made it again another time with cut up chicken breasts and that was good too!
I can't believe how quick and easy this recipe is! I was quite the opposite of getting a "jump start" in the morning. When I started making the recipe my shrimp was still frozen and had to be peeled, and from the time I started till we sat down to eat it was still just 1 hour! This recipe is awesome...tastes like something you would be served at a very good restaurant! I was a little intimidated by the review re crushed red pepper so I cut it in half, and my husband's comment was that it had a "little kick"...just perfect! I highly recommend this recipe...can't wait to make it again!
