Review Body: I'm surprised how easy and flavorful this recipe was. I'm allergic to shrimp, so I had it without and it was still delish. I could see jumbo lump crab working with this as well. I used 2 cloves of garlic instead of 1, but definitely not necessary (in fact I should've just stuck to 1 clove, but my love of garlic consumes me :P).  Will definitely make again!
