    Although I'm not as hostile as Angry Cook, I gotta agree. This recipe is wretched. I used shelled shrimp, so I skipped (and would never) brine the shrimp. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. The flavors were so bad that I ended up draining off the sauce and throwing on some butter and lemon juice to make it more like shrimp scampi. But then, of course, the shrimp was tough. Keep looking for a better recipe.

    Family really liked this. I did add Broccoli and carrots in with the onions and garlic and then with the shrimp I added fresh ginger and fresh chard.

    I hope the incompetent chef who posted this recipe is reading - you ruined a special birthday dinner for my 100 year old grandmother. This dish was so salty it made half my guests sick. I am thinking that it was because the shrimp was already peeled, but it should be clearly spelled out that only unpeeled shrimp should used. I hope this post helps all the blue collar workers out there who work a 12 hour shift of manual labor and then come home to make a special dinner for their dear grandmother without making her vomit!!

    Great taste and overall a good dish. I'm so glad someone posted about kosher salt vs. regular salt. What a difference! Definitely can't substitute. We did brine shrimp before and had the overly salty taste; inedible. This came out perfect.

    This recipes can be changed in so many ways but stilll turn out yummy! I replaced green onions for a white one, black peppers for crushed(though if you do that dont add salt!) and vermicelli for garlic bread. I did not have half the ingredients like basil and so i improvised.
