This is a simple garlic shrimp that is great served on steamed rice or pasta. I also like to serve it as an appetizer, just double up the recipe depending on amount of guests.

My mom made this.(I did taste it, although it was reheated. The flavour was great. She probably did not put in enough red pepper flakes in, and didn't add the parsey but none the less it was great. Next time all spice it up a little more than she did. It is an excellent recipe Leanne

This was very good! I only used 1/4 cup of oil though to cut back on calories. I made just as the recipe stated and they came out great! I served with whole wheat pasta and topped it off with Mango and Red Onion Salsa #97508. Great recipe Chef Vseward! Thanks!

First of all, I don't understand the 1/2 cup of olive oil. I used just as much as I needed to. I didn't taste as much garlic as I expected to. I will admit this, though. While I wasn't thinking, I accidentally crushed the garlic to peel it, so I just minced it, but I doubt that really made a difference. If I planned on making it again, I would flour the shrimp to thicken the sauce some.
