My husband found this recipe in an old Southern Living cookbook. He's made some adaptations and the result is incredible. This makes a very pretty presentation and people will be asking you for the recipe the second they taste it!

- 2 -3 teaspoons hot sauce
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 1⁄2 lbs unpeeled large shrimp or 2 1⁄2 lbs shrimp (fresh or thawed frozen..we've also used peeled shrimp and it works just as well and isn't as messy t)
- 2 lemons, thinly sliced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- Combine the first 9 ingredients in a small bowl.

- Rinse shrimp and then drain.
- Layer the shrimp, lemon slices, and onion slices in a 13x9x2 inch baking dish.
