Black Pepper Shrimp

Black Pepper Shrimp

Servings: 6 servings

  • 3 lb fresh shrimp, unpeeled
  • 8 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 4 tablespoon freshly ground pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

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 butter mixture over 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.
