"I absolutely love shrimp and I try lots of recipes using shrimp. This recipe was easy-to-make and delicious. I read the other reviews and eliminated the salt also."

"I made this yesterday for the 2nd time. It is absolutely delish. The only thing I would change is to either use less salt or eliminate it altogether. Great recipe!"

"I liked this recipe a lot! I used smaller shrimp and a little less of it in order to save money. It was very good, but I definitely need to add a side dish if I go that route again."

"Excellent! I was skeptical it would taste like scampi from the grill, but it does! Just the right amount of garlic. We loved it!"

"These were tasty although not spectacular by themselves. Next time, I'll add some crushed red pepper to the shrimp and serve with a pasta dish, on a salad, or as some sort of sandwich. Love the healthy protein shrimp offer!"

"Made this today for lunch. My husband scarfed them up in no time. He did leave a little for me. I used a NuWave oven to grill the shrimp and it did a wonderful job. I will make this recipe again very soon."
