I made lots of changes to this recipe. I didn't use the microwave, and eliminated the green onions and cayenne, though they'd be fabulous. I used baby bella mushrooms- about a cup and used roughly 4 tbs butter in a saucepan, and sauted two garlic cloves, the mushrooms and 1/4 cup of onions in it. Then I added 1/2 cup of sherry. Let that simmer and then added the shrimp. I cooked the shrimp for a couple minutes, removed it, and then added about 1/4 cup of flower and 1/2cup of milk. I think next time I cook it I'll used cornstarch instead. I had to add a bit of salt but it was very tasty. I also served it over instant rice.


This recipe was a waste of two lbs. of shrimp. I doubled it and it was awful. There was no flavor as it did not say to add any seasonings. I would not want to to waste your time over this recipe.


Kind of bland. I added parmesan cheese and garlic.
