We were at Giovanni's a few weeks ago, so made this recipe last night in a hope of revisiting that experience. The results were tasty, but I don't believe Giovanni's use flour in theirs, as our shrimp were coated but not as juicy as the real thing. Will definitely try again, but will omit the flour. Thanks for sharing.
My hubby and I ate at Giovanni's shrimp truck 5 months ago. I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it hit the mark. The family loved it and we thought the recipe was spot on. Great job, Bizzy-bee! The instructions were perfect, right down to when to turn off the heat. This recipe is a new family favorite and we will make it again and again! We are very grateful for the recipe! Thanks, Kay~Cee
