this is so wonderful! i usually cook my shrimp and scallops with anissette, for that anise flavor. this time i used sambucca instead of ouzo. i used alot of fresh basil because i was out of parsley, 6 plum tomatoes, and otherwise followed the recipe, i loved the cheeses which just thickened the sauce, taste was sublime-

Awesome is all I can say! DH and I both raved about this, it's so good. I realized too late that I was out of ouzo, so I used some white wine and anis seeds. It still was incredible.<br/>Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for A Diabetic Summer Trip / Diabetes Forum

This was great! I may cut down on the amount of cheese - it turned out VERY cheesy - but no complaints! My family loved it and I will make it again! Thanks!

We enjoyed this recipe and want to thank you for sharing it. It was simple, quick and very filling. I tossed it with some pasta. The sauce was delish and the shrimp were nice and tender.

Hi ev, I was dubious about this recipe because of the anise flavor, I don't like it as a rule. However, it turnd out beautifully and the flavor was wonderful! We used ouzo (will have to look for some other recipes that have it so I can use up the bottle), feat cheese but used the Gouda and lots of parsley. It was superb! Thanks for posting, Diane :=)

Another Winner Recipe. A fantastic sauce. Be prepared and have enough bread at hand. The Ouzo makes the difference here. What a great flavour the ouzo add. And the greek cheeses add that creamy and delicate touch. Fantastic, wonderful awesome shrimp recipe. Try it.

Terrific shrimp recipe! I unfortunately had to omit the liquor, because I couldn't find any annissette or ouzo or anything like that. I did add a dash of vodka. I also took advantage of the gouda option instead of kasseri cheese--couldn't find that in my area. We all loved this--thanks!
