Members of my family that don't like Brussels Sprouts request this dish frequently, especially on holidays. It's about as simple as you can get, but the combination of bacon and Balsamic Vinegar make for an awesome dish.
This is one of the best shrimp dishes I've ever had. It was inspired by a similar dish I had at Bobby Flay's restaurant Bolo a while back. This is fantastic with a good crusty Italian bread to spread the garlic on and soak up the sauce, but you might also try it served over pasta, maybe with a splash of lemon juice.
