This is exellent and very easy to make. Strongly suggest increasing the green onions by 2 more Tbsp. and increase the cayanne pepper to 1/4 tsp. Gives a perfect amount of "zing." Using the amount of pepper called for is me on this one. Next time I think I will add some mushrooms and maybe some garlic. This would be good company dish served in puff pastry tart shells.

This was just ok. I made the recipe pretty much exactly as written - I did add quite a bit of chicken stock and milk to thin the sauce a bit but it didn't seem to help. It was SOOOO THICK - way too thick. It would have been good with probably 1/3 of the cream cheese. Won't be making this one again.

just great, with a few revisions. i doubled the onions like others did, added a good amt. of garlic powder, and added 1/2 T of cayenne. i also cooked the shrimp (2 lbs of med. sized in 1 T butter and a little olive oil) w/the cream cheese and spices thinking the flavors would meld better than cooking the shrimp first w/only the onions (and fresh mushrooms which i also added), knowing that shrimp cooks fast and it still had to go under the broiler. i also added more white wine and milk--didn't measure--no need to, it's pretty obvious when to quit as the original recipe is just too thick. served it over linguini and would never put it over rice. really, it was *divine* and everyone loved it here inc. my 11-yr-old son. thanx so much for the recipe!

I'm not normally a seafood lover, but I thought this was wonderful. Used pre-cooked, de-tailed shrimp, and made the following changes in accordance with reviewer's suggestions: 1. used 5T green onions (about 3 scallions total), 2. added two cloves of crushed garlic, 3. added only about 6 oz cream cheese, 4. increased white wine to 1/2 cup, added BEFORE cheese so it could reduce a little bit. It turned out wonderfully-- savory and rich, and not too seafoody. Thanks so much for this recipe!

This was sooo good but incredibly rich. It was exactly the flavors I wanted. My changes were only that I used butter instead of margarine, added garlic and used shrimp and scallops. When I sauteed the scallops a lot of moisture came out so I added that to the sauce which worked really well. The best part is my husband hates this kind of stuff so I have a full serving for lunch tomorrow as well.

Kind of like a creamy shrimp scampi. I added mushrooms and stirred in some linguine noodles before broiling. I didn't use the bread crumbs, but Parmesan instead. I will make again, with maybe a T or two more of milk or a little less cream cheese.

This was good but it is indeed very very rich. The only thing I did differently was to use Neufchâtel cream cheese and half Swiss, half Provolone. I think this would work with grilled tuna steaks too. Thanks!

Great Recipe. Sorry I don't usually measure but here were my alterations to the recipe. 1/2 yellow onion. 1 bunch green onions, italian blend cheese, and Sauvignon Blanc wine over angel hair pasta. This is a really rich dish and it was great for a special dinner for my husband. Enjoy
