Not for the faint at heart or bland at palate. This shrimp is for the garlic lover that likes a little (or a lot of) heat. Dont substitute the butter for oil and dont substitute the cilantro for parsley (otherwise it is just like every other garlic shrimp!). I like to serve it on a medium rare T-bone with a baked potato but it is just as good out of the skillet with a crusty roll.
