Prosecco Shrimp ala Debbie

I was inspired to fix this dish by Slow Travel poster Debbie from Phoenix. She had entered a cooking contest with this recipe and needed votes. Here is the website link.

What a quick and easy recipe that was completely delicious! The sauce was to die for - I want to try it on other types of fish.

The shrimp has finished cooking and is ready to dish up.

I served the Prosecco Shrimp on top of brown rice, and there was not a morsel left:

Thank you, Debbie, for a wonderful recipe!

Nancy, I am so pleased that you tried my recipe and blogged about it! Thank you so much. With your permission I would like to include your link to my facebook and twitter feeds.
Thanks again!

Sure, Debbie, that would be fine!

Good luck in the contest!

This looks fantastic! I've drank a lot of Prosecco but have never cooked with it. I need to give this a try.

Oh this does look great and easy.
