Added a little butter when cooking shrimp, and some Cajun seasoning. Used cilantro to garnish and I would completely omit that next time. Otherwise a decently quick meal that I paired with cauliflower rice

This recipe turned out great! I used regular olive oil & some minced garlic paste which was perfect for this recipe. I used a little bit more than a pinch of paprika, parsley I had & poured lime juice.

Very simple and delicious. The lime and paprika is a different combo than I'm used to, but will definitely try again. No changes here!
Absolutely amazing! It's a very simple and easy to cook recipe. A suggestion to further enhance the recipe is to add chopped yellow onions (sauteè it with the garlic), green onions, a 1/2 squeezed lemon, and a 1/2 tsp of paprika (for a little extra kick!). Also, instead of using rice, try spinach as a healthy alternative!
very awesome! will make again

Delicious! Added sautéed onions and a little butter because I was worried the recipe might be too plain. Flavor was good, made tacos with a little Salsa Rosada.
pretty dang good man 👍🏻👍🏻

Aside from spicy, the flavor wasn’t dynamic. I put it over rice and it tasted better with soy sauce...

Turned out great. Sautéing the garlic and red pepper flakes was a great touch to the shrimp

This recipe was just ok. It's not one I will cook again.

It did taste garlic but not in a very pleasant way. It wasn't awful but not worth making again.

Cilantro rice accompanied and it was a bit blah
Halbert 10 Jan 2017

Delicious! My husband likes to spice things up so i added some fresh jalapeno slices with the garlic. Very simple and quick will make this again.
Katherine C. 15 Sep 2016
Delicious and simple! I'll make again! I added basil at the end and used chopsticks to flip the shrimp.
