This was excellent. Made it as written except the red pepper. I can't eat red pepper but I did add a few crushed red pepper flakes. Stirred cooked orzo into the sauce. Can't wait to have it again.

I added red pepper flakes and substituted some olive oil for part of the butter. Also, I generally use a skillet so as not to heat up kitchen with oven.

Also, add lots of garlic.

I have a package of 31/40 pre-cooked shrimp... if thawed, would this recipe work, shorter oven time at same temperature?

Hello Dave - We do not think precooked shrimp would be a good idea for this recipe. While you could try heating the sauce, then adding the shrimp and cooking just until the shrimp is heated, the shrimp may still come out overcooked. We recommend sticking with the large fresh shrimp for best results.

OMG, made exactly as written, had French bread to soak up the sauce, next time will double. Absolutely amazing! Used jumbo (13 - 15 per pound) shrimp, baked 9 minutes, perfect.

Super meal! Served it in pasta bowls with lots of sauce and crusty bread. Green salad on the side made it perfect!

what to serve with???? Pasta, cheese grits or what??????

We like serving it with crusty bread, but we think grits or rice would be great, too!

mexican hiroshima shrimp- hit me up if ud like to know how real flavorfull spicy shrimp are made!:)

I'm a hitting would love your recipe please share with me.

Can we substitue the dry red wine? I have children that like shrimp...

The alcohol content of wine, beer, liquor cooks off as soon as the liquid is heated, so there are no tipsy effects. The wine gives a depth of flavor to the shrimp, and I know of no suitable substitute.

You may use some watered down red grape juice. Or apple everything the same depth.

Agree with Satina. Different, delicious way to serve shrimp!

Best shrimp I ever had. We reduce the shrimp to one pound because we like lots of sauce and there are only two of us, and we serve it over quick cook brown rice. Fantastic.

Boston Brown Bread

This colonial-style brown bread is actually cooked inside of a can and it's a New England favorite! Our Boston Brown Bread is moist and flavorful on its own, but it's even better when you slather on some butter or cream cheese right before serving!
