I had to do something oh so wrong. I prepared the sauce mixture early in the day. About 2/3 into the cooking time I felt something was needed. I added salt which is not listed in ingredients, about 5 more garlic cloves and a dash of cayenne. After refrigerating, hopefully to meld flavors, I reheated the mixture and added the shrimp. The 3 minute cooking time was not enough for the shrimp to absorb the flavors in my humble opinion and the sauce seemed unremarkable.

This is, indeed, a great recipe. I am preparing it again tonight. I use chipotle powder in place of red pepper flakes (simply because I have it).
