Last week at the grocery store frozen shrimp was on sale so I happily snagged a bag. I love shrimp! I tend to mainly use it in pasta, so I was happy to find a recipe on Colleen's blog that would let the shrimp stand alone. I was a bit worried that this would not be filling enough as a main course, but I was wrong! It's suprisingly hearty and very, very good! The only change I made was to use fat-free half and half instead of regular. I also add two packs of tiny little frozen scallops in the freezer so I threw those in as well. Oh, and because I was worried that it would be bland I threw in some Old Bay seasoning, but it really didn't need it! We really enjoyed this! It was a different way to enjoy our favorite shelfish.
