Garlicky Baked Shrimp

Garlicky Baked Shrimp

I’ve told you before that when it comes to seafood, I hate fish, but truly enjoy most shellfish. Shrimp, in particular is something I really look forward to on special occasions.  This ole girl goes for the popcorn shrimp, the shrimp scampi, the shrimp and pasta, etc. when she’s at the Lobster of Red or any other seafood joint.  I came across this recipe and gave it a whirl.  Let me just say, next time David’s grandparents, who are avid seafood lovers come to town, I do believe I’m going to make this for them!  These bad boys just melt in your mouth and make your heart happy.  Mmmm Mmmm.  Go ahead, give ‘em a whirl.
