Some make this dish very, very hot. This version is spicy yes, but it is not so very hot.

5 stars for sure!! This shrimp was awesome and I could have just kept eating and eating them. I did not measure the pepper, but I don't think I used the full amount, but I do believe the amount would work, even though it's pretty high :) Will be making again!

Yes, spicy but not hot! Delicious! I made two servings and enjoyed every shrimp myself, with freshly made bread! Because I started out with less of all the sauce ingredients, I only simmered them about 8 minutes, then added my shrimp and cooked for 3-4 minutes. I saw on Cook's Country or America's Test Kitchen that simmering cracked black pepper takes out much of the heat. Tagged for Spring Photo Tag 2014, due 05/07.
