    Anita Harris's Note:

    I had a dish like this at a dinner party and after searching for the recipe I took a little from each recipe I found that was similar and this is what I came up with. It has been a "big" hit every time I have served it (my sister isn't a seafood lover at all but ate 2 platefuls of this delectable shrimp) and I never have any leftover. This normally serves 4 people (the rule of thumb for fresh shrimp is 1/2 lb. per person), but if you are serving it for more than 4 you may want to increase the amounts and bake in 2 dishes. I serve this dish with lots of french bread and a large green salad. Oh, be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand as it is a little messy to eat since you have to peel the shrimp as you eat them. YUMMY! (The prep time includes cooling time for the butter mixture).

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat then add all other ingredients except the shrimp. Mix well.
    2. 2
      Let cool to room temperature.
    3. 3
      Rinse shrimp well but DO NOT peel!
    4. 4
      Place shrimp in a 13x9 glass baking dish and pour cooled butter mixture over shrimp.
    5. 5
      Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 350°F and bake, uncovered for about 30 minutes or until shrimp turn pink (be careful not to overbake as this will cause the shrimp to be tough).
    7. 7
      Serve shrimp along with some of the sauce in bowls or on plates and have plenty of warm french bread slices to sop up the wonderful sauce.

      Almost identical to one I use all the time! I use the large shrimp, however. How right you are about the messy aspect---I NEVER serve this one anywhere but our OUTDOOR dining table, with a roll of paper towels at either end of the table! You're right about the bread to "sop up" those delicious juices. And we love fresh boiled corn to go along with the shrimp. MMM!

      I had to peel the shrimp to get the veins out, lol. I used 3 tablespoons of garlic. Great flavor but bad breath. I only cooked about 20 minutes because my shrimps were not hugh and the shells were off.
