“This recipe originated from a former co-worker and I've made a few minor adjustments in the quantities. You can adjust the seasonings to your own taste. The cooking time for shrimp is minimal so please do not make the mistake of overcooking your shrimp. One of my favorite ways of eating the shrimp is to drop them in a salad of Romaine lettuce and Blue Cheese dressing.”
