  1. I was looking for a quick way to cook my shrimp tonight and found this…I will substitute dry sherry for the wine and cayenne pepper for the red pepper flakes as that’s what I have…serving with a raw broccoli, quinoa, walnut, herbs, dried cranberry salad with lemon vinaigrette. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for your feedback, gorgeous!
