This is an older Southern Living recipe that I made for my husband's birthday dinner last year. I served the shrimp with broiled lobster tails, twice baked potatoes and yeast rolls. The recipe is a little time-consuming, but absolutely worth the effort. Prep time includes peeling/deveining the shrimp and the chill time.
