  1. This was good. I’m not good at following recipes so I guessimated my measurements. I used canned mushrooms so I added it after the shrimp cooked. I also added a touch of white wine at the same time. I feed guys so I added a little more shrimp. The dish was good everyone liked it. But next time I make this I’ll use half and half instead of cream.
