Reviews for Shrimp Monterey
"Excellent. Peeling and deveining the shrimp weren't my favorite part but we picked up fresh shrimp at the docks while the boats came in when we were on vacation at the beach. It doesn't get much better than that."
"I made this a couple of months ago and loved it. Making it again tonight. Yummo!"
"quick fast tastes great"
"This wasn't nearly as good as I'd hoped. Somehow seafood and cheese just never turns out good."
"Have made this a few times. Each time trying to get more sauce to put over pasta. Very good flavor. Really like it."
"A perfect dish to have for a special occasion."
"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."
