    This recipe has potential but is only worth 3 stars as written. Here are my tips: 1) Use more garlic 2) Use half the butter 3) Add a little white wine 4) Stir-fry the broccoli with the garlic and tomatoes - that way it won't get overcooked 5) Top with Parmesan for serving. Now, you will have a delicious dish. =)  -  01 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is only about 3 stars as is, but 5 with some changes. I marinated the shrimp in kosher salt, black pepper, Italian seasonings, onion powder, minced garlic and olive oil overnight. I grilled the shrimp on an indoor grill and set to the side. Sautéed a pack of frozen broccoli in butter, added minced garlic, black pepper, onion powder and a can of tomatoes for 5 minutes. I used lightly buttered Chinese lo mein noodles, too. YUM YUM!!  -  13 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Thanks to all the reviews. I followed the advice of several. I tossed my shrimp in basil, oregano, red and black pepper, and salt I had some fresh asparagus that needed to be used. Saute the broccoli,asparagus, 1 large mushroom, lots of garlic, and jar of fire roasted peppers, plus the can of tomatoes, not drained. To this I added a few more dashes of red pepper flakes because it seemed bland. After about 5 minutes, I added the shrimp and it was truly delicious.Don't forget to add some white wine when you put shrimp into the skillet. Will definitely make this dish again.  -  21 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
