You have no idea how enticing this post is to me. I love shrimp and I am the only one that does in my home so that means MORE for me.

I think it looks amazing but I would add with some Red Pepper Flakes. Green Chilies or something spicy.

Umm you can bake them instead of broiling.

Aly May 6, 2014 - 10:59 am

If I bake them for how long do I cook them and what would be the temperature??

utokia May 23, 2014 - 8:07 pm

Hi Aly,

if you baked them instead of broiling, I would put them on 400 degrees for about 6-8 minutes, Shrimp take no time to cook!
