Easy to prepare with ingredients that I have on hand! I went easy on the cayenne since a little heat goes along way for my family.

Easy to prepare and lip smacking good! I followed the recipe exactly using the full 1/4 tsp of cayenne because we like spicy. I used larger shrimp and found that I needed to add about 1 minute to the cooking time. I will make these again and again. Lynne, TOH Volunteer Field Editor

This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except I left out the nutmeg as I had none. It didn't make a lick of difference as this was just delicious and super fast to put together.
