Made this for a special birthday dinner for my boyfriend. We loved it. Delicious and so easy to prepare. Paired it with roasted brussel sprouts. Thank you, Bobby Flay. This will be a go-to recipe for us in the future! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had all ingredients except the cheddar cheese. I did have some left over rotel and velvetta dip. I added that to the pot and it was scrumptious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is easy and quick. I followed the reviews and added some jalapeño (can't believe a recipe from Bobby Flay wouldn't have jalapeño) and sprinkled the shrimp with old bay seasoning when cooking them. The cheese I cut back and used both parmesan and cheddar. Think the parmesan did make the recipe pop. Also added some cream for some richness. Going to try it out on some of my Southern friends to see what they think. item not reviewed by moderator and published
