A lovely snack anytime. The taste of the garlic is very subtle and so if you like garlic, you may need to add more.

I made this recipe tonight using the broth option and it was delicious. I served them with garlic couscous and a mixed bean salad. The shrimp got raves all around and it's something that I'll be making again.

Splendid! Shrimp / prawns normally don't soak up marinade too well so cooking in the marinade with stock added (which I used rather than wine) was a master stroke that really helped them take up the flavors. As the final step said to transfer using a slotted spoon I assumed it wasn't really supposed to produce a sauce and served over a fresh salad as a main. I like a good spot of garlic so used around double the quantity which I found pleasing without overpowering the herbs too much.

We really enjoyed this for supper with rice and peas. Made for Herb of the Month.
