    How much olive oil? There's a typo in the recipe so you can't tell what it was supposed to say. I will probably use 2-3 tablespoons. It sounds delicious and we're going to try it tomorrow for dinner, but we'll use large sized frozen shrimp. - 8/29/09

    The original recipe calls for 1 TBS of olive oil. That is what I used. Sorry about the typo.
