Black Pepper Shrimp

Black Pepper Shrimp
this is Paula Dean's recipe, but I have made one like it for years. I just never added the garlic (now I will), and I don't measure the pepper. There's enough when there's enough.

You get the flavor / spice of the pepper, but not all the heat.

3 pounds fresh shrimp, unpeeled
8 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
4 tablespoons freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Wash and drain shrimp, and place in a shallow baking pan. In a saucepan, melt the butter, add the garlic, and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp and toss to coat. Pepper shrimp until shrimp are well covered. Bake until pink, approximately 5 minutes, turn, bake a few minutes longer, and pepper again. You must use a heavy hand with the pepper.

Serve shrimp with warm bread and salad.

If you peel the shimp they would get too much of the pepper heat (and flavor) in them. The peel being there lets the flavor through, but not as much of the heat.

Peel and eat. Good stuff, try it.

If you are a pepper lover, this is real good with Penzey BOLD flavor pepper.
