Delicious! I didn't use the peppers, but otherwise made as stated. Even without them it was delicious! You could substitute chicken for the shrimp with good results I think.

Subtle light flavour - loved it. I used raw white prawns and added them for the last 4 minutes of cooking. They were done to perfection. I love a recipe that you can get the ingredients ready in advance and then it only takes minutes to cook before serving. Ideal recipe for entertaining. Thanks Derf for a wonderful Sunday dinner

Derf you weren't kidding when you said this was soooo delicious! I love shrimp and this looked extremely good to me. It was so good in fact that it exceeded my expectations and I found myself going back for more. I served it with garlic bread and ate every last crumb in my plate! Thank you for sharing yet another of your wonderful recipes. It is so good to find such great recipes here at Zazz to try and this one should not be missed! Linda

This was a delightful recipe. Very light taste that went excellent with french bread with an olive oil bread dip we made. This is the kind of relaxing meal with white wine and a rich dessert like a chocolate mousse cake that I craved for this evening. Thanks for the recipe Derf!
