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