    I needed more liquid because I wanted to serve it over angel hair pasta. Added Canola Balance oil for bulk and Smart Balance imitation butter for flavor. I only had precooked shrimp, so I sauteed the garlic and carrots, and popped the shrimp in last for about a minute to warm them up. Barb loved it! I did too.

    I made this just with the oil, garlic, and shrimp; I used frozen shrimp and it was wonderful. We gobbled it up very quickly and agreed that this is most certainly the ONLY way to eat shrimp! thanks for posting!

    Great recipe! I admit, I used unsalted butter instead of the oil. This was quick, easy, and tasted like I had worked all day on it. DH says this is the "only" way to make shrimp now! Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Inez! :o)

    Now I know why you call this your magic shrimp. I prepared it exactly as instructed and it was excellent. Now my family begs me to make it. It is a simple recipe and a beautiful dish as well.

    Yum! The cilantro is what really makes this dish. I tried a bite of it before I added the cilantro, and I wasn't that impressed. But--add the cilantro, and DELICIOUS! Instead of just the oil, I used both olive oil and Smart Balance to cook it in (at least a tablespoon of each). This was quite good just as the recipe is written, but the second time I made it, I added a small amount of dry white wine to the pan and allowed it to cook down a bit before adding in the shrimp. I also added in a bit of crushed red pepper. This worked out quite well. We had this over lightly buttered pasta seasoned with garlic. This is a great recipe that the whole family enjoyed. I look forward to making it again!

    Excellent! I used Pam nonstick spray instead of oil. I had 2 pounds of shrimp, and there wasn't a bite left!I love the sweetness the carrots add. I am a HUGE fan of cilantro, so I probably had more than 2 tablespoons! This was super quick and super delicous. Thanks for posting!

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
