Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti

This Spaghetti dish with Shrimp is our family favorite and makes a great dinner without any fancy cooking. I just love garlic and use lots and lots of chopped garlic in this dish. You may adjust the amount of garlic as per your preference. Another unusual ingredient used in this dish is chopped coriander leaves. I was hesitant about using it initially but was quite surprised to see the outcome.  I urge all of you to try this combination to discover a completely new flavor.
