I needed more liquid because I wanted to serve it over angel hair pasta. Added Canola Balance oil for bulk and Smart Balance imitation butter for flavor. I only had precooked shrimp, so I sauteed the garlic and carrots, and popped the shrimp in last for about a minute to warm them up. Barb loved it! I did too.
I made this just with the oil, garlic, and shrimp; I used frozen shrimp and it was wonderful. We gobbled it up very quickly and agreed that this is most certainly the ONLY way to eat shrimp! thanks for posting!
Great recipe! I admit, I used unsalted butter instead of the oil. This was quick, easy, and tasted like I had worked all day on it. DH says this is the "only" way to make shrimp now! Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Inez! :o)
Now I know why you call this your magic shrimp. I prepared it exactly as instructed and it was excellent. Now my family begs me to make it. It is a simple recipe and a beautiful dish as well.
Yum! The cilantro is what really makes this dish. I tried a bite of it before I added the cilantro, and I wasn't that impressed. But--add the cilantro, and DELICIOUS! Instead of just the oil, I used both olive oil and Smart Balance to cook it in (at least a tablespoon of each). This was quite good just as the recipe is written, but the second time I made it, I added a small amount of dry white wine to the pan and allowed it to cook down a bit before adding in the shrimp. I also added in a bit of crushed red pepper. This worked out quite well. We had this over lightly buttered pasta seasoned with garlic. This is a great recipe that the whole family enjoyed. I look forward to making it again!
I'll try the butter substitution next time, too. Very good! My first time to cook shrimp. Went well with Bergy's Mexican Roasted Garlic Broccoli #27054. I'll definitely make this again.
i like garlic shrimp i added 4 cup hot peppers my kids cry for 2 days, they good now be home from hospital soon, mom & dad love,miss you . tang, fahg,hong kong fuwee.
Very nice recipe. Very easy and tasty. Would like more of a sauce with it so might add orange juice next time just before serving.
This was delicious! I did add a little more garlic and some red pepper flakes for zing but oh so good. Served with jasmine rice and Japanese Vinegared Cucumbers#43101. I might add some wine/lemon juice next time for a little more sauce for the rice. Made for Healthy Choices tag game.
