    The best shrimp dish I think I've ever made! Buttery, garlicky, tangy...they were perfect. This truly is a 30-minutes-or-less meal which is a huge plus. The fact that it's an all-in-one dish (except for the rice) is just a bonus

    This is similar to a recipe I've used, but preparing it in a skillet on the stove. Baking the shrimp enhanced the flavor, I did not add the salat, and instead of the whipping cream (which I did not have on hand), I used an Alfredo sauce. Being avid fans of shrimp, I am d delighted to have another good recipe to turn to.

    This is a quick and easy week night meal. It was just a little bit salty for me but otherwise tasty.

    This tasted delicious. It took a bit of time for the sauce to thicken after I stirred in the heavy cream, but my family ate every bit of it. We will definitely make this again.
