Why I Love This Recipe

To Die For!!!!! You may want to double the recipe.

*The reason to cook he shrimp with peelings is to give flavor, however if you prefer you can cook them peeled. I prefer to cook them with peelings, as the heads hold a nice flavor. Remove head and squeeze juices over bread.
