    Chabear01's Note:

    This impressive Mexican Dish is perfect for both the inexperienced cook and dyed-in-the-wool garlic devotee. Recipe is from small cookbook "Totally Garlic Cookbook" my late DM picked up one year at the Gilroy Garlic of her favorite trips taken every year.

      There is just really no way to go wrong with this recipe...especially since it is jam packed with shrimp and garlic...2 foods that were made for each other. Love Rita L's idea about dipping the bread in the butter oil!!!

      This is really a lot lower in fat then stated! That is because you don`t eat all the butter and oil unless you get a beautiful crisp fresh loaf of bread to dip into the butter oil mixture with! So you can make the full recipe and soak up the fat goodness or cut it back to just a 1/3 of the recipe. I made the sauce then used that for the oil to baste the shrimp with. I did shell the shrimp wxcept for the tailends. DH needs it all done for him. Thyanks for a great very easy recipe!
