    Garlic is not over powering. Very Spanish flavor.

    For the most part it was good. I would advise to use very little red pepper I think I may have used a bit too much. Recipe doesnt give you an amount but I would say maybe like a teaspoon or so.

    Added a little butter when cooking shrimp, and some Cajun seasoning. Used cilantro to garnish and I would completely omit that next time. Otherwise a decently quick meal that I paired with cauliflower rice

    This recipe turned out great! I used regular olive oil & some minced garlic paste which was perfect for this recipe. I used a little bit more than a pinch of paprika, parsley I had & poured lime juice.

    Very simple and delicious. The lime and paprika is a different combo than I'm used to, but will definitely try again. No changes here!

    Absolutely amazing! It's a very simple and easy to cook recipe. A suggestion to further enhance the recipe is to add chopped yellow onions (sauteè it with the garlic), green onions, a 1/2 squeezed lemon, and a 1/2 tsp of paprika (for a little extra kick!). Also, instead of using rice, try spinach as a healthy alternative!

    Delicious! Added sautéed onions and a little butter because I was worried the recipe might be too plain. Flavor was good, made tacos with a little Salsa Rosada.

    Aside from spicy, the flavor wasn’t dynamic. I put it over rice and it tasted better with soy sauce...

    Turned out great. Sautéing the garlic and red pepper flakes was a great touch to the shrimp

    It did taste garlic but not in a very pleasant way. It wasn't awful but not worth making again.

    Shrimp yummy! Cilantro rice accompanied which was a bit blah.
