I LOVE this recipe, it is definitely five stars in my book. But my husband hates it because he thinks it is way too garlicky. This is even after I halved the garlic, and reduced the oven temp to 450 and baked it for 12 minutes to take the edge off of the garlic taste. Despite his objections I still make it from time to time because I think it is fabulous, just beware if you aren't a garlic lover.

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. It is super-easy to make and the flavors meld perfectly. Admittedly, it is garlicy, but no more than a scampi dish would be. I usually toss in a little extra garlic, just for fun. I also like to make just a bit of extra sauce to soak up with the bread. I find that sourdough was a perfect recommendation to accompany this; it is the perfect complimentary flavor. Even though sourdough isn't my favorite bread, I've had this with with a plain baguette, and it just wasn't the same. I usually have to double the time on the recipe, but that probably has something to do with variations in ovens and the glass baking pan I use.

Very quick and easy. I did substitute cilantro for parsley because I had it available. Will definitely make again. I cooked on a sheet pan and shrimp were perfectly cooked in 7 minutes. I would like a little more sauce next time.

Delicious, garlicky shrimp! Quick scampi-style recipe that is a real winner. I like serving it with peas and a crunchy artisan style bread. I usually just line the baking pan with foil, so the clean-up is nice and quick!

Mine came out very bitter - maybe the garlic???
