Shrimp in Green Garlic Sauce
Wow, this is a really powerful and delicious dish. If you are looking for subtle flavors, search elsewhere. But if you're in the mood for a garlicky, "must dip my bread in every last bit of that sauce", type of dish, you cannot beat this. I'll admit our kids are not normal, but all four of them downed these shrimp and were dipping their bread in the sauce..even with some red pepper flakes mixed in. It's that good! Serve with oven warmed, crusty Italian or sour dough bread and a good dipping vegetable (I used cauliflower).

Ingredients

  • 9 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup olive oil or slightly more
