      This dish is absolutely delicious! I made it to use up some frozen shrimp I had left over from Christmas. The ouzo is a nice touch. We had it with pita bread and a good red wine.

      DELICIOUS, quick and easy! I ate this with some good seeded bread (for sopping) that I bought at a nearby International market. Bibs should be required :) ~ I used a pound of shrimp with the tails on and they were quite messy to eat! As soon as the leftovers cool down I'll snatch all the tails off so eating it tomorrow will be less messy. :) I had no Ouzo or Pernod, so I added one heaping tablespoon of dry toasted fennel seed and it gave the dish a slight licorice flavor! Made for Pets'R'us MAY LiveSTRONG COOK-A-THON support event in the Photo Forum.

      I had to use a small regular onion as I had no shallots, I also had no ouzo so used a tablespoon of lemon juice. Not the same I know, but it worked fine. I made mine with fish and we enjoyed it a lots thanks Pets. Like Mirj, we love olives, so I was generous with those.
