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!

So easy and so good. This is a simple recipe but the flavours work wonderfully together. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was great as part of our tapas dinner. Thanks!

Very good and simple recipe. We had friends over for a tapas dinner and they asked for more!

Can't think of a thing to improve upon this recipe. Used the ceramic dish-on-the-grill version and plan to use it again, many times.

I think using fresh shrimp and using the recommended ceramic dish will make a big difference in this recipe.
