I love shrimp! This is a wondeful way to prepare them, and I'd need lots of crustry bread to sop up the delicious sauce!

Yum! This recipe sounds delicious. I am a seafood lover...especially shrimp and scallops. Wonder if I could substitute the scallops or just add them to the dish?!!!

Thanks so much for dropping by today.

Judy, I LOVE anything with shrimp and this looks fabulous!

I hope all your blogger woes have been solved, I know this has been frustrating for so many and some have given up all together.

Have a fantastic weekend!

This looks sensational! I have been craving shrimp,but it's an ingredient I tend to shy away from -- I have no idea why, it just seems to work out that way. I'm going to have to change my ways and give this a try as it looks soooo good!
