Garlic Shrimp

Garlic shrimp – a simple, wonderful preparation of shrimp that highlights their sweet, delicate flavor. Serve this dish over rice or cauliflower rice to soak up the delightful sauce. I love shrimp and always have packages of raw shrimp in the freezer. Just 5 minutes in a bowl of cold water and they defrost.
