“This is a simple recipe I found in a Southern Living cookbook that I have had for years. Every time I make this my husband gobbles it up in no time flat. Although the recipe calls for 1 cup of butter I would suggest 1/2 or 3/4 cup because this just seems like a lot of butter to me. Because I loooooove garlic I use 8 or 9 cloves of it. I would suggest using fresh garlic cloves and not the freeze dried ones as they tend to burn easily. If you don't have the time or the patience to devein shrimp you can definitely use the the fully cooked shrimp just remember they only need to cook for about 1-2 minutes.”
