Reviews for Spicy Garlic Shrimp
"Easy and good. How could you really go wrong with butter and garlic?"
"This had a good flavor. I like the heat along with the garlic. I mistakenly bought pre-cook shrimp so the shrimp ended up a little overcooked. I splashed the shrimp with a bit of lemon juice right before serving and served it with white rice and the baked broccoli from this same issue."
"No impressive at all. We used 1/3rd pound of shrimp and a full recipe for the rest and we still couldn't taste any of the spices."
