  1. This recipe is amazing! It won over my picky family...we've actually had it twice this week by my husband's request! I have to say, it's a little frustrating to read through reviews because it seems as though everyone spins it to their taste or what they have on hand. While that's great, it doesn't help those who want to know what people think of the recipe as is. I prepared the shrimp exactly as the recipe directed and it turned out wonderfully!
  2. This is a great little recipe. I added a few steps which took the taste to the next level. I coated the shrimp in flour. Instead of olive oil, I used two tablespoons of butter. I minced the garlic and added it the butter with 2 Tbsp of white wine. Then tossed in the mixture. It came out great.
  3. Simple and delicious! I used lime zest and juice as it was all I had, and i tossed everything together and let it sit in the fridge for an hour before cooking.
  4. I took the advice of another and instead of red pepper used not quite 1/2 tsp. of Old Bay seasoning. This was a major winner with my picky husband and I love it, too!
  5. I must say, this was really good! I used Garlic powder and already chopped up Parsely leaves as an alternative. I also used frozen shrimp, After i preheated the pan I simply put in the frozen shrimp and waited till the heat thawed it out. That's when I added the ingredients.


  1. took off the tails, ate the delicious garlic
  2. Sub garlic cloves with 2 teaspoons minced garlic. Sub fresh parsley with 2 teaspoons dried parsley.
  3. I used clubhouse Greek seasoning instead of steak sauce and marinated the shrimp with everything except parsley before cooking it.
  4. I us
  5. This recipe is AMAZING!!! The first time I made this, I improvised by using a bit of sage instead of parsley and it turned out great!
