I found this photo when I was going through my old recipe photos and I can't believe I never posted it! I love shrimp so much and am almost always in the mood for it. It's such a hearty meal with just a hunk of bread to soak up the sweet nectar at the bottom of the pan. It also makes an impressive statement at the table for guests.
