Super delicious and easy shrimp recipe, Member annastaciatrout

This is a great garlic shrimp recipe! It was really easy to make and didn't require any uncommon ingredients. We honeymooned in Hawaii and got amazing shrimp there and my husband said he thought this was better. It was really delicious!
