    Tried this today it was pretty good.

    1 pound of peeled deveined shrimp 21-25 count. Drain on paper towels but do not rinse.

    I bought easy peel.


    Put the shrimp in a bowl and salt, pepper and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar, stir to mix.

    Make sauce now in a bowl 2-3 Tablespoons of softened butter 1-2 Tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley, 1 minced clove of garlic and salt,juice of 1 lime (I messed up and used lemon it was still good) Stir to mix set aside.

    One large heavy hot frying pan. 1-2 Tablespoons of oil heat until it
    starts to smoke. Put half of the shrimp in the pan (you want all shrimp to be flat on the bottom of the pan) Cook ONLY ONE MINUTE
    Remove the pan from the heat and turn the shrimp over cook off the heat in the hot pan FOR 30 SECONDS, remove to a plate, reoil and re- heat to just smoking ( if you fill the room with smoke you went too far)cook the rest the same way,one minute and 30 seconds.

    Put all the shrimp and the sauce into the pan (still hot but off the heat) cover and let heat for one minute.

    Serve now.

    I have to try this. now here is another

    Margarita Shrimp

    make a very good Margarita (use good tequila not cheap stuff)

    Set it aside, hell make a pitcher and save one

    In a good heat ditributing frying pan (I use cast iron or calphalon)
    Belt butter and add the margarita

    saute you shrimp in this. When the shimp are done take them from the pan and pour the butter and margarita in a margarita glass rimmed in salt and old bay seasoning.

    Place the shrimp around the rim of the glass and serve with slices of Lime to squeeze over it

    I grill shrimp simply with "old bay" seasoning and olive oil. Tastes great and cooks good.

    old bay is good but is a little over powering for me i prefer cajun foreplay by dianasar bbq. i wrap the shrimp in bacon and then grill it with that on there and it is awsome
