Succulent Garlic Shrimp

Succulent Garlic Shrimp created by Bergy

This is a favourite with friends and family and I usually have to make much more than a single recipe calls for. Wonderful for that 'something special' needed for the holidays.

    Oh my, my, my. These were excellent! I had my dad over for dinner and wanted to set out a impressive spread. I served these as an appetizer and wow, what a hit they were! I marinated the shrimp for about 5 hours. Such great flavor and these were really easy to make. Evelyn, you never let me down! Thank you.

    I tried this over the weekend and it is to die for. Not a lot of obscure ingredients that no one keeps on hand, just everyday stuff. The flavor was better than any I've had in restaurants. I probably added a little more garlic than called for since I used the instant minced garlic that comes in a jar and probably used 3 to 4 tsp. That was the only adjustment to ingredients that I made. I did marinade it overnight in the refrigerator and I think that really helped the garlic flavor saturate the shrimp.

    This recipe gives you a tasty succulent prawn, not overstated but still loaded with flavor. I pan fried mine with just a light spray of oil on the pan. Coat the prawns with the cracker mixture just before you are cooking them - the mixture stays crisp and crunchy. Thanks Evelyn for yet another great recipe
