"I made this for Christmas Eve dinner along with a beef Tenderloin recipe from this website. Everyone loves the shrimp. I received many compliments. They were delicious and marinated perfectly. It was a great and easy choice that everyone loved."

"too much rosemary for my liking - it lost the shrimp taste. made this for Thanksgiving - would've prefered an ordinary shrimp ring with seafood sauce over this dish."

"I first saw this recipe a few days ago and it just looked like something I needed to make. It looked like it had to be great. I bought two pounds of 13 count shrimp with heads on, brought them home and cleaned them and followed every step in the recipe as written. YUK!

The herbs were over powering in that they covered the taste of the shrimp and the wine I used. It's a good thing I fixed this for family and not company.
Half of the shrimp is left and I'll be throwing it out today. What a waste of good shrimp. The name of this recipe should be shrimp flavored herbs."

"This was YUMMY!!! I made two different shrimp recipes tonight for a dinner party. They were both hits! Although I liked this one better. I think it was the rosemary that won me over!! Very light and summery! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. It will go in my permanent cookbok!"
