      *NITA'S TIP: Large shrimp are quicker and easier to prepare and worth the price!
    20. 20
      If you use extra large (jumbo) shrimp, you will need to cook them for about 4 minutes.
    21. 21
      **NITA'S TIP: You can use fresh basil or parsley and make the same recipe.
    22. 22
      Then you would have Basil Butter or Parsley Butter.

      As long as you get enough sauce on each piece of shrimp, these are pretty good. Made as directed except that I did use fresh basil in place of the chives (that's what I was growing.) Thanks for the recipe!
