    I followed the recipe and the result was amazing! Tastes just like Queensland pasta. This is what i order at Outback every time. This recipe is delicious and simple.

    It’s been years since I ate at the Outback but it used to be one of my favorites – I always used to order grilled shrimp on the barbie and the shrimp came on a piece of black bread with an absolutely great dip [probably with horseradish] that made me want to lick the bowl so I wouldn’t miss any. Do you have a comparable recipe?

    There is also a little lemon juice in this sauce. By the way, sauteing the chicken and shrimp in wine doesn’t taste right to me. I like to marinade and grill them instead. Yummy
