    Bev's Note:

    A beautiful addition to your Autumn table. This roasted shrimp covered in a brightly hued sauce flavored with just the right touch of garlic and lime is brought to you from the La Casa Que Canta Restaurant in Zihuatanejo, Mexico and the You Asked For It section of Gourmet Magazine, November 2007.

      I made this with a full amount of the sauce but half the shrimp, as we like things saucy. The roasted garlic has a very dominant flavor and the sauce is very rich, I added more lime juice to add some balance, but would cut back on the amount of garlic next time (I am a garlic lover so this surprised me. I used large shrimp and they cooked in about 7 minutes.
