I just couldn't wait to try out the ramekins my daughter bought me for Christmas. I love them... nice for portion control too.

This shrimp dish really hit the spot. Creamy good and just a hint of Sherry to the flavor. Can be served as an appetizer w/ toasted baguettes or serve over pasta as a main dish.

It's impressive enough to serve guests. They will thank you!
