Garlic Shrimp Mark Bittman's Way, hands down the best garlic shrimp you've ever had!
NYT Cooking: Green sauce means different things to different cooks, but I like the Iberian interpretation best. It draws its color from parsley and its impact from chilies, scallions, and, mostly, garlic. I find it difficult to use too much garlic here, and have never really reached the outer limit
