Good post. I always add a little burgundy to mine which gives it a kick! Other than that we make it about the same here! Thanks for sharing.dmajor in Slidell loved it
Thanks for saying yes to my invite. You got some nice food here and this dish will happen next week. Sorry I can't get AMERICAN shrimp but Samoan shrimp are good sized and very tasty; also they are here. Buono Apeatito (good eating). RJelgourmand in Apia loved it
