"Yes, almost the same as my other recipe but 100% better! A little change went a long way. It is the best, I promise! I have NEVER in my life had better shrimp. My whole family was in heaven. OK, enough tooting my own horn!"
Serving Size: 1 (62 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"When I read this recipe I thought... wow, that's a lot of garlic and parsley. But I made it... hoping that it wasn't like some where it's so garlicky that that is all you taste. Well, the parsley, gotta use fresh, and the garlic balanced each other perfectly. Every flavor came through brillantly! There's a lot of oil and butter left so I cooked up 8 oz. of linguine and just added that at the end to absorb the same flavors. My family loved it. I think next time I will add a little white sauce and see what I come up with. Thanks Bethany!"
"Garlicccccccccc! Yummy! This was a really wonderful recipe for garlic shrimp. I served mine over fettucine noodles. The only change I'll make next time (and it's just a family preference) is to half the amount of parsley. Everything else was perfect for us. One thing I didn't know about was if you added all of the marinating sauce to the saute pan or if you picked the shrimp out of the sauce first. I chose to include the sauce so it would coat my noodles."
"Well send my home and call be Buford!! lol OMG!!!! What a delightful experience this was!! A tastbud THRILLER!! Yum! The only thing I would do different is to cut back on the olive oil, next time I will use only 1/4cup, other than that it is perfect. We mixed it with some pasta, and what a wonderful meal. I think next time I'm going to marinate it in some cajan spice (Tony's, the BEST), and grill it in my saute pan that my DS got for me. Maybe some red pepper flakes and lemon zest. Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed. Thanks for such a great recipe!!!"
"I must have done something wrong. Mine came out too garlicky (and I love garlic) and very slightly too salty (I used a teaspoon of sea salt). I'm going to try this again with half the salt and a little less garlic as I can see that it could be a great dish."
"This was really good! I work night shift so I threw the marinade and shrimp together after I got off of work in the morning, let them marinate while I slept, and fried these in my wok when I got up in the evening before work. I did use dried instead of fresh parsley (I didn't have any fresh) and it still turned out tasting wonderful!!"
"Delicious shrimp, B! I followed the recipe to the letter, with the exception of squeezing lemon over the finished product. We had these for our "oscar party" and I made Mean Chef's Chipotle Remoulade to dunk the shrimp. Very, very good."
"YUMM-Y! This shrimp was outstanding. We served them over pasta with a white sauce, some garlic bread and a salad. EVERYBODY loved it.Thank you for a great recipe. Can't wait to make it again!! :o)"
"Delicious!!! That about sums it up. We devoured this in record time. My kids loved it, my dh loved it and I loved it. I will be making this at least once a month, if not more. The flavor was incredible Bethany!!! Great Job!!!!"
"If this is the Best Garlic Shrimp in the Whole Wide World, then my Garlic Shrimp recipe must be the Ultimate Garlic Shrimp in the Whole Universe...... Was kinda salty....didn't taste good. After I ate 1 shrimp, my son ate 1 shrimp, and my wife ate a shrimp....we call 100% agreed that this recipe needs to be tweaked and made better. Don't waste your time trying this recipe....you'll be disappointed and will waste a batch of wonderful shrimp too! Didn't want to eat another shrimp after the 1st one......phew.....quite disappointing!!! Made it for a tailgate party that I was going to......but I should have stuck to my own shrimp recipe (it's a 1,000 times better!!!)....."
"Im not a big parsley lover so I used Cilantro and served over angel hair pasta....<br/><br/>DELICIOUS"
"Very good served with orzo, salad and balsamic dressing."
"You are right, this recipe is first-rate and better than restaurant quality. Thank you."
"Did exactly as directed, and it turned out great! Would make this again anytime! :)"
"Terrible...followed the recipe exactly...greasy, oily slop...too much oil and butter...get out to some better restaurants and taste what shrimp is supposed to taste like...it need not be masked in a boatload of oil and butter ...where do you get off with off with1/2 cup of oil, then 2 tbsp of butter? I feel sorry for my wasted delicacies. I should have known better, and will in the future."
"These were pretty good. I loved the garlic and fresh herb flavors, but thought there was a bit too much oil. I also cooked for a much shorter time, just until they turned pink- about 5 minutes total. Made for ZWT8"
"Wow...this was absolutely delicious!! It's hard to believe that only a few ingredients could impart such a wonderful flavor. Of course, with the combination of garlic and shrimp, how can you possibly go wrong? We enjoyed this with cilantro rice for a nice, light delicious dinner. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!
**Made for ZWT 8 Spain/ Portugal**"
"I love Garlic Shrimp and have a recipe I use regularly. THIS will now be my 'regular recipe' - it really is wonderful. I think the marinating time makes a big difference. I made it exactly as written and there wasn't one bite left over. Always a good sign. :)
Made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT 8"
"I liked it and so did my hubby. I cut the amounts by half and that was enough for both of us Made for World Tour 8 Thanks for posting"
"This was so delicious! I did shrimp and scallops and will definitely be making this again!"
"i dont understand how this got so many good reviews. im so upset that i listed to everyone and essentially WASTED perfectly good shrimp. this recipe is flat out gross. i love garlic and i love shrimp but this totally made me second guess my love for both. my husband who loves shrimp ate MAYBE 2-3 shrimps and stopped eating dinner. what a waste. beware and look elsewhere for another recipe"
