    I used 26-30 raw shrimp. Cooked it in 2T butter & 1 T olive oil. Garnished with freshly chopped parsley. Excellent recipe. It's very easy to make and cooks quickly. we had it with stir-fry Chinese noodles. I will definitely make this again.

    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.
