Oh so good! This took minutes to make and the results were just what I had hoped. I used 1 clove of garlic in the sauce and 2 cloves with the shrimp. I also added some oregano and lemon juice to the shrimp, which were nice additions. I will be whipping this dish up again in the future. Made for my fellow chef from the Tasty Testers. Thanks ellie_! :)
This was a lot easier to do than I thought it would be and was great for a hot summer's afternoon. The garlic wasn't in the ingredient's list so I wasn't sure exactly how much to use but I must have guessed okay because it tasted good. Made for New Zaar Tag.
