      So simple and with such a delicious outcome. My husband was most impressed and passed a tray among family members insisting everyone give them a try. I secretly had the thought of calling him the Shrimp Pimp.

      Not sure why you would want to peel the shrimp before you cooked them other than to make eating them easier!! You totally lose flavor when you take the shell off. What has greater flavor a boneless ham or bone-in ham? So goes the same with shrimp! The bone and the shell protect the flavor. I have been selling and cooking meat and seafood for 30 years and certainly can tell the differance. Also only buy wild caught shrimp for best taste!!

      Excellent boiled shrimp. The flavor of the black peppercorns and lemon was perfect. I made the sauce but did add a little more horseradish for personal preference. Thanks so much for sharing. And Congratulations on winning Pot Luck Special Event.
