Finally got some shrimp so I could make this. I liked it alot and will make it again. I only had written crackers on my list so I bought Ritz crackers instead of whole wheat. I plan to try it with the proper crackers next time, but if I do, I think it will need some more butter or, perhaps, EVOO. It was a tad on the dry side with the buttery crackers, so with the wheat...maybe more so? Oh, do either lightly oil your pan prior to baking or use parchement paper as it did stick some. I will also increase the garlic (maybe roasted) as I love it!
