This a really great basic recipe. I made this last week and I am going to make it again tonight. The only thing I am changing is cutting back on the salt. I find most things to be too salty for my liking and this proved to be the case in this recipe as well.. for me at least. Really great basic recipe though.

Marinating precooked shrimp in garlic- and lemon-infused oil is a simple yet elegant appetizer.

This recipe was so AWESOME and everyone LOVED it. Will make it again. Everyone wanted the recipe. Had a rich garlic flavor and light on the lemon. Just right and refreshing.
I will make this dish again and again. Even when the temperature outside is 2 degrees, this dish was perfect as a chilled entree. I prepared the shrimp as directed and let the dish marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator, served it with toasty bread and the result was fantastic! If I shut my eyes I could see a beach way off in the distance!! Just wishing, I guess!
I made this as an appetizer for a gathering last night! Huge success! I made the marinade earlier in the day and only added the shrimp @ 2-3 hours before serving.
This will definitely take the place of "boring shrimp cocktail"
at any future party!
I made this last night as directed, but instead of tossing the cooked shrimp in a bowl, I added them to the skillet and allowed them to simmer for a few minutes because I didn't want to eat them cold. This in turn created a nice sauce. I served with whole-wheat pasta for a great dinner! Next time I would reduce the oil slightly (maybe 1.5 Tbsp) although making it as instructed wasn't greasy, and add a lil white wine when I add the shrimp into the skillet. Will definitely make again... this dish took about 10 minutes to make! So easy!!
My husband loved it too, and he's not a big shrimp eater. He said it was fresh and healthy!
