    chez patty's Note:

    This recipe was obtained from My son wanted *something different* for new years eve dinner, and I yelled downstairs to him to find something with shrimp, as I had a bunch of shrimp leftover in the freezer from Christmas. The aroma of all that garlic while cooking made our mouths water! Very tasty meal and not a complicated recipe. Our guests raved about it. We doubled the recipe and served 4, however the portions were very generous, I'm sure I could have served 6 on the doubled recipe.

      I've made this twice now, and it is sooo good! The first time I forgot to add the cayenne and could only get smaller shrimp, which I slightly overcooked. I'd still have given the recipe a four, but wanted to wait until I could get better quality shrimp before sending a review. I used 18 shrimp, a little over half a pound of bavette and upped the chilli flakes to 3/4 of a teaspoon. I couldn't find Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, so used regular dried breadcrumbs to which I added around a half a teaspoon of dried Italian herbs. I didn't use any salt, and my SO who adds LOTS of salt to everything thought it was perfect. We like garlic but don't like it to overwhelm, and while the garlic is very evident in this dish it blends beautifully with the other ingredients. Thanks, Chez Patty, for a deliciously robust dish I am sure to make many times! :)
