Shrimp Monterey

For a special occasion or when company's coming, this delicious seafood dish makes a lasting impression. You'll be surprised at how fast you can prepare it. A mild, fresh-tasting sauce and the Monterey Jack cheese nicely complement the shrimp, I serve it over pasta or rice. —Jane Birch Edison, New Jersey

    I made this tonight for dinner. It had been planned for just my son and I but then my granddaughter joined us for dinner. I doubled the chicken broth and butter but left everything else the same. It was good and my son loved it. If I make it again I will add some Slap Yo Mama to add some heat but not a lot of salt.

    Delicious! I also doubled the amount of butter, garlic and white wine for more sauce over the pasta.

    SO awful! Way too cheesy! It is not even a sauce, but just a slab on shrimp and cheese, why would you eat that with linguine? I love to cook for my partner and this is the first time he has ever not eaten my food.

    OH my gosh, We just had this for supper & WoW!! Just 2 of us so 1 pound of shrimp, however I made the whole sauce recipe & glad I did. Next time I will double the sauce, plate it in single serve dishes with linguine, then bake it. It was fantastic!! Thank you Jane.

    Made this for my husband and myself with a few adjustments. Used 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup chicken broth. Added 1/3 cup whipping cream to reduced liquid. Added cooked pasta to the sauce then topped it with shrimp, cheese and parsley and baked them altogether. Next time will add artichoke hearts or fresh peas.

    This dish was simple and delicious. I used broth and wine and doubled both. I seasoned the shrimp with salt, pepper and some Tony’s spice to give it a little more flavor. I had some mushrooms so I threw those in as well and probably used 5 cloves of garlic. I served it over linguine with a green salad. Perfect meal that filled us all up. My husband and son loved it so well that they definitely gave me a thumbs up and want me to fix it again soon.

    Very good. Should have double the broth and wine sauce. Hubby does not eat seafood so made with chicken as well. Will definitely make again, but make some modifications as others have suggested.
