Garlic Firecracker Shrimp

Two of my husband’s favorites are shrimps and spicy food.  I have found recently that I am allergic to shrimps ( I think I have mentioned it in an earlier post), and I am not too fond of spicy food.  But I love feeding a hungry and appreciative husband so I fixed this dish for… Continue reading Garlic Firecracker Shrimp
