I'm torn w/how to rate this recipe. As written, it would be inedible, due to extreme saltiness. I used about 1/2 lb of shrimp, and adjusted the salt/powder to 1 TBSP each, knowing it was still going to be too much, and it was. I cannot imagine this as written. That being said, assuming a typo and that it should be TEASPOONS, not TABLEspoons, this is excellent! I served it over pasta and it truly would have been inedible (because of the salt) had I not. If these were typos and the recipe is edited, I'll happily adjust my rating.

As the other reviewers, by using teaspoons instead of tablespoons, this recipe is Awesome.

I left the salt and garlic powder out entirely. I use two tablespoons of minced garlic and have served it many times with rave reviews.

Changed the tablespoons to teaspoons and this was still too salty. Maybe will try again without the garlic salt.
