    Hi, I noticed you had this tagged as vegetarian…vegetarians don’t eat fish. You could make it vegetarian by replacing the shrimp with tofu or tempeh, and using a vegetarian worcestershire sauce. Thanks!

      Hi Karen, I know some vegetarians that don’t eat meat or poultry, but do eat fish. Maybe they’re called a different name. I’ll remove the veg tag from it. And thanks for the suggestions 🙂

    Some call themselves pescatarians, but really they are just picky omnivores. 🙂

    Oh, by the way, I’m making those shrimp the next time I get my hands on some good ones!
