I expected to love this recipe, but the only thing I liked were the garlic breadcrumbs. They were truly excellent, and I'll be making them again. Unfortunately, the mayo/aioli just did not turn my crank at all. We usually use any leftover aioli on sandwiches, but since we didn't like the herb combo or the texture, I finally scooped into the food waste recycling bin. It's a great idea...but that particular mayo didn't work for us.
Such a great and creative recipe...really has the wow factor for guests! I must admit I did cheat on the breadcrumbs and fried them with some oil and garlic. Can't wait to make it again!
I loved this. Just gourmet enough to show off your skills. The key on the garlic is to not to overcook. Take off heat when it gets just light brown.
The reviews made this sound irresistable and we were not disappointed. I substituted gluten free bread and non-dairy mayo. and left everything else the same, just doubling the recipe. We had 10 guests and not a bit of leftover. I had to print the recipe for 4 of my guests, with lots of "you can make this for me anytime!" It was a great party!
This is very tasty- the breadcrumbs add a wonderful crunch to the shrimp and mayo. Guests love it. Very filling also.
I love this recipe. Very tasty.
I've made this appetizer twice for a bunch that are pretty creative in the kitchen so I'm always on the hunt for something different. This is IT! The comments were very complimentary and everyone loved it. I grilled the shrimp on the BBQ instead of boiled, marinating them in olive oil and fresh garlic for about a half hour. Serve them hot or prep in advance and chill, they are great both ways. I expanded on the dry dips just for fun, but the breadcrumbs are a must, so good. I served the spicy mayo as is. Added a number of different dry dips for variety. Crushed Maui Onion potato chips, toasted sesame seeds, toasted coconut in separate dip dishes and wow you've got something for everyone. This will forever be a favorite and so easy to do everything in advance.
Nice idea! It was quite the crowd pleaser
I made this recipe to serve as an appetizer for our family Christmas dinner. Since I wasn't sure how it would go over, I also made the usual cocktail sauce. Well, this recipe was such a hit, no one touched the cocktail sauce. Everyone raved about it. Nice to find a different way to serve the usual boiled shrimp. Definitely a crowd pleaser! I'll be making this again!
This recipe is incredible. Very interactive to have with company, and also tastes delish. It is quite rich though, so if you are serving another appetizer, I would make it a light one. I adore shrimp and I could only eat about 5-6.
Fantastic! I didn't bother corn-starching the garlic (I was out of corn starch) but it was just fine. I also blanched some green beans so that the vegetarians in the crowd could enjoy it as well.
