"Just add 1/4 cup of dry sherry to this and you have an outstanding Newburg Sauce. I would not make this recipe like it is, seeing how close I was to a traditional Newburg. I couldn't forgive myself. In the last 5 weeks have made Shrimp Newburg and Crawfish Newburg. Next up is Crab & Crawfish Newburg. But I need a couple more sessions at the gym first."

"This was yummy and easy. We used bow-tie pasta instead. We made a quarter recipe and it took 14 minutes to cook the 1/2 pound of shrimp."
