Two crucial facts missing (or confusing) in this written recipe! The video did not answer them either. Sloppy on the part of the providers. Would you please find out: 1. List says CANOLA oil with the shrimp, but the cooking instruction says OLIVE oil! What oil should be used? 2. "Heat in saute pan or grill. Add shrimp..." Heat to what level? Medium-high? High? Boring. No one wants to burn shrimp, NOR eat raw shrimp. Thanks for chasing down these answers and re-posting. Pls let the chef/videographer know these points for future recipe/cooking clarity. Thanks!
