I make this shrimp dish every Christmas Eve and it’s so unbelievably delicious! Feast of the Seven Fishes approved! It’s made with shrimp, fresh herbs, and savory add ins that make this dish a fan favorite every Christmas Eve. I hope you give this one a go the night before Santa Claus comes to town!
