    canarygirl's Note:

    This is a wonderful Spanish appetizer (tapa), and is so easy to make! It is delicious served with crusty french bread and red wine. It may be made up to a day in advance, and then cooked right before serving.

      I absolutely adore shrimp and now this recipe has to be one of my favorites. Preparation was so simple yet the shrimp are so flavorful. I experimented with the garlic and pepper flakes making half of the shrimp with a little extra spice. We found it to be perfect and yet not over powering. Served with sauteed artichoke hearts, a green salad and crusty bread for dipping into the sauce. HMMMMMMMMMMM!

      Loved this once I got the seasoning to my liking! I was conservative with the red pepper flakes and salt at first. I used a whole pound of shrimp and 5 garlic cloves. I kept adding salt and red pepper flakes to taste (added garlic powder, too). So good! I love the olive oil instead of butter, too. Thanks cg!

      Great shrimp recipe, cg! Loved the flavors. I went fairly heavy on the chili flakes and added a squirt of lemon and a dusting of parsley. Excellent! Thanks for posting!
