Country Lady- these we a huge hit at my dinner party. I got shrimp already marinated in garlic and butter and they were already butterflied with the tails on. (great appitizer from M & M )So half the work was done already.I just followed the recipe from step 2 and served them in small lasagna boat style dish to each quest. Loved them - this is a keeper. thanks again

I tried this recipe tonight and it met rave reviews! I used the frozen and spiced shrimp as well to cut down my time in the kitchen. It turned out beautifully, and was so flavorful! You can tell that this is a restaurant recipe, it tastes so fresh. Thanks for sharing, CountryLady!
