Made it, loved it, served it over linguine. This is one of those recipes where you really want to have everything chopped and measured ahead of time because once you get started, it cooks very quickly. This is now my go-to garlic shrimp recipe.

Must try! Chef John posted the best oven-baked-ribs recipe in the history of the world, so I'm eager to make this tonight!

I made this last week when it first appeared. It was easy and delicious. It's also good cold. I usually cook only for myself, so leftovers are terrific. I'm in the process of making it again as I write. I love, love, love garlic, so this is just what the doctor ordered--(garlic is very healthy!)
