Hi Shygirl, I made this for a gathering and it was a hit. I love that it is easy to do do. But can you please clarify the amount of garlic please? I could not tell if you meant 1 clove or 1 whole head of garlic. Since I like garlic so I used 1 entired head/7 cloves and the shrimp was very garlicky which was still great but if just wanted to know the exact amount for future references. Thanks in advance.

Excellent Dish! I made as directed except I used a red onion instead of a green onion. We served over rice. The sauce is very nice and very spicy which is what we like. Thanks shygirl. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
