    It’s as delicious as it looks! I saw this on Pinterest on Friday and was craving it all weekend.

    Fast forward to today, I decided to make it with the help of the little ones.

    It came out smelling and looking great, but tasting it was a whole other experience!

    Hands down the best shrimp I’ve ever had. 🙂

    I’ve tried this same recipe with chicken, but never thought about using shrimps. Made it tonight with brown rice and spinach and it came out fabulous!!! Thank you!

    Thank you for this creation; I’ve used only “creamy” ingredients to make shrimps and this one is definitely on my to do list. Have a pleasant day !

    Seems so delicious and healthy. I would definitely try this on weekend.

  • shannon May 23, 2017, 11:46 pm

    I plan on making this in a little bit..but it seems from the instructions that it should be cooked a bit longer than just a minute and 30 seconds. Let’s see what happens!

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was simply delicious! I served it on pasta with asparagus on the side. So very good! The sauce made me lick the spoon!

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was yummy….love the sauce! It was quick and easy and I will definitely be making this again. I did cook my shrimp a little longer and it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!
