a sea of shrimp

This past weekend we had a craving for a simple dinner: a pile of spicy peel-it-yourself shrimp. Along with some delectable garlic-cheese bread, we quickly tossed a generous portion of shrimp into the oven for 15 minutes and dinner was ready.

This recipe came from the lovely pioneer woman. The secret to these spicy and savoury shrimp is combining them with olive oil, lots of black pepper, garlic powder, vermouth, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. We lined them up on a baking sheet and that's all the prep time we needed.

As for the garlic bread...a simple combination of shredded mozarella and parmesan cheese, garlic and butter was all it took to produce a delectably cheesy garlic bread to sop up all those juices from the shrimp.

Spicy, peppery and tender, these shrimp were too delicious for words and are a must-try for all you fellow shrimp lovers out there.

Gosh, you guys eat well. My l/o cheddar orecchiette was looking pretty good for tonight, but now I am not so sure. :)

I know what you mean, Janet. But you could go with olive oil like we did!
