It was good, but I had to improvise on several things. The recipe directions are not very clear. I used 5 cloves of garlic because we love garlic, I sauted a tbsp of garlic with the shrimp and added a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper to spice it up, I also had to add another tbsp of olive oil to the shrimp so it would not dry out. Option 2- Reduce to half? What temperature should we place the oven at and how long to cook option 4 for people that are not very good cooks- I did 5 minutes at 400 for the bread crumbs. I tossed everything in one big bowl. Turned out really good, the basil makes this recipe.
