REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I had some shrimp to cook and wanted to try something new. Found a new favorite! Very easy recipe. Ready in just minutes too which is nice. Served with rice pilaf.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I was dubious about the egg coating on the shrimp. I hadn't done shrimp that way before but you know what? It was really good! And the marsala wine was a wonderful touch - it gave the dish a lot of depth. I highly recommend it.
