The flavor wasn't bad, but this wasn't for us. Fortunately, I didn't put the full two pounds of shrimp in, because then it would have been an expensive tragedy. However, because I only put in 1 lb. of shrimp, it was more like an oily soup. If someone wants to try this recipe, I have a couple of recommendations. 1) Halve the recipe--unless you are feeding a decent sized family (5+) you don't need all of it, and it doesn't reheat very well. 2) Don't use frozen shrimp, make sure that your shrimp is thawed because otherwise it oozes more liquid into the "sauce", and then you have soup. 3) I would definitely make sure your tomatoes are seeded and that all of the "goo" you can get out of them is gone--probably even wipe them with a towel, just to be sure, and AVOID CANNED TOMATOES!! Because, again, you don't want a funky soup. Thanks anyway MaryannG!
