    Delicious!

    Carolyn from Los Angeles

    I made a few changes as I tend to favor intense flavors. Doubled the onions. Included white wine (i.e. 1 cup wine/1 cup water). Also in the past I've always put the liquid in in stages which I did again; adding 1 cup at a time until almost simmered through. Would recommend grilling the shrimp for extra flavor versus saute (also cuts down on butter). Would recommend adding extra lemon zest with the Parmesan at the last moment. Overall VERY DELICIOUS and easy to prepare. Served with grilled zucchini & chilled white wine.
