    I loved this recipe. It is now on my list of "keepers". I did substitute clam base/stock for the chicken stock, substituted low fat sour cream for the half and half, and omitted the onions. Directions are clear and easy to follow. Drizzling the lime butter over vegetables was also good. - 2/23/11

    Delicious! I used 1/2 cup old-fashioned grits since I didn't have any quick-cooking grits on hand. I also cooked the shrimp in the chicken stock for about 30 seconds before they went into the skillet. It was a creamy and flavorful dinner. Will definitely make it again! - 3/1/11
