    I'm cooking this for dinner tonight, but one thing you can do as a substitute for the wine...If you're buying raw shrimp with the shells on (like I do), take the shells off and cover them with water and a little lemon juice and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Use that water. - 3/16/10

    Maybe a little chicken broth in place of the white wine. That will add moisture but not the same flavor as the white wine.
