    Super! Just like the garlic shrimp at the Portugese restaraunts we've been to in Newark, NJ. We also add hot sauce (Franks, Louisiana, etc.) A couple of shakes if the kids are eating, LOTS more for us!

    Oh my stars. This is the third recipe of yours that I have tried. My husband and I are in love with your recipes. This was just incredible. A great garlicy flavor. Easy beyond belief. Served this with fresh steamed broccoli and green salad. Made for a very pleasurable meal. Thanks.

    Yummy and easy. I toasted some Italian bread to sop up the juices with and it was delicious. Will definitely be making again. Thanks NurseDi

    This is kickazz shrimp. Very easy to make. Great garlic butter flavor. I served over hot noodles. Took very little effort and we had a 5-star meal. Thanks Nurse Di.

    This is just about the only way my family will eat shrimp now that we've had it this way. Served with a rice pilaf and a green salad, it makes a quick yet flavorful meal. I'd recommend using extra virgin olive oil instead of the vegetable oil, however. The smoking point is higher and it brings out the garlic without a heavy, oily taste.

    I must add my accolade! We used spicy garlic oil instead of regular cooking oil. This is a restaurant quality dish that can be made at home. My husband slurped the buttery garlic sauce out of his plate like soup. There wasn't even a molecule left of this dish when we were finished. We also cut some corners and bought the shrimp already cooked, peeled and deveined, it took 10-12 minutes tops to prepare.
