This is our friend Russ’ recipe for a wonderfully easy dish which will appeal to the shrimp lovers. FYI…Russ used to live in Windsor, which is where Larry and I first met him. Since Memorial Day is coming up for our American friends like Russ, this recipe is a little tribute to him and them!
Note that I am putting it in the KISS category, as it is so simple to prepare!
