For a special occasion or when company's coming, this delicious seafood dish makes a lasting impression. You'll be surprised at how fast you can prepare it. A mild, fresh-tasting sauce and the Monterey Jack cheese nicely complement the shrimp, I serve it over pasta or rice. —Jane Birch Edison, New Jersey

This wasn't nearly as good as I'd hoped. Somehow seafood and cheese just never turns out good.

The shrimp was great!! I poured it over some white rice and I doubled up the sauce to pour onto the rice. Everyone loved it and ate them right up.
