    Oh my this was so good the shrimp were so tender and juicy. Thanks Paula
    This was superb! Very flavorful and easy to assemble
    I absolutely love, love, love this recipe. It's fabulous and agree with the other reviewers, it has to be served with lots of french bread to soak up all the peppery goodness.
    Fabuloius recipe...always serve this with lots of french bread to soak up all the peppery butter sauce!
    make this all the time,, everyone loves it,, except me cant eat shellfish :{
    One of the most simple and most flavorful and delicious I've ever made. Thank you Paula Deen!
    This is my favorite shrimp recipe... I grill the shrimp on a very hot grill, only for abt 3 minutes. Makes it crispy and juicy.
    I have wanted to make this recipe for a long time and am so happy I finally made it. Very easy to prepare and simply delicious. The most fun was the juices coming from the Shrimp. Try it and you wont be sorry!
    Since everyone is saying this is amazing i gave it 5 stars. I am making my career become real. I want to be a chef, so i make recipes every wednesday. This is my first wednesday, and i am very excited. I am also using my cookbook. In my cookbook, i am making homemade rice pilaf!!!!! Yum what an amazing combo!! I can't wait to go to cooking school. I just want to be a chef, because cooking is my passion!!!!!!!!!!!
    I love this dish! I usually steam shrimp in Old Bay and beer but saw this recipe and had to try it. I'm glad I did because I would have never thought of baking shrimp. It is delish! As an added bonus you can peel the shrimp and scrape up some of the sauce and put over pasta. My husband was working way into the night and I didn't think he'd want to peel and eat shrimp so I cooked some Parmesan and Angel Hair Pasta (pre-packaged) then added the shrimp and sauce afterward. When he got home he nuked it and said it was really good.
    very simple to make. the shrimp is not overpowering at all. It has just the right amount of kick from the garlic and pepper. wonderful dish for outdoor picnic.
    This is finger-licking good shrimp. So easy to make and so incredibly tastey.
    This recipe is so simple and basic but a wonderful surprise. I use a pepper mix that has some red pepper flakes in it. We were very pleased with this tasty and fast dish. It was simply wonderful and we will have it for our Memorial Day weekend family gathering.
    Here's what I used:
     

     
    1? lbs. of peeled shrimp
     
    4T butter
     
    1?T chopped garlic
     
    2T freshly ground pepper
     

     
    The rest is the same as Paula Deen's- often imitated,never duplicated!
    The recipe is simple, but the reviews were good, so I made it. It was SO bland. It tasted like shrimp. No seasoning at all.
    Paula always manages to come up with new and better ways, and old and delicious ways to prepare food.
    VERY GOOD, SO TASTY, NOT TO SPICY, CANT GO WRONG WITH BUTTER !!!
    can't get enough of it even works well with frozen shrimp if your in a hurry
    It was Good
    Was very nice, even though it may look like a-lot a pepper you just need to add more.
    Extremely simple and WONDERFUL!
    they are so good
    Delicious and easy! I use lemon pepper sometimes instead of black pepper.
    You won't believe how good this is unless you try it....It has to be my favorite shrimp receipe.
    It is so, so easy and everyone loves it. Whenever my daughter comes home from college, she asks me to make it. I confess I add extra butter to have plenty to soak up with bread. I also like to make it for friends -- cover the table with newspaper and have a fun, messy time. You can not go wrong with this recipe. Oh, I also add a little salt.
    The best I've ever had, don't use quite as much pepper as Paula uses, I make mind without the shells, therefore, I cut the pepper by 2 Tbs. it's the best, have it quite often, it's so easy and just great, can't say enough. Pauls'a a jewel. Love that lady.
    This is so easy to prepare. It's quick too. Great taste.
    This is about the only way we eat our shrimp now. It is delicious with fresh NC shrimp.
    We had this at my mother-in-law's and it was fabulous. We dipped fresh french bread in the sauce. Very good. I just wish the recipe online was the same as the one on the show. My mother-in-law had watched the show and prepared it differently from the online recipe. We haven't been able to duplicate.
    JUST INCREDIBLE..TOOK TO A FINGER FOOD PARTY AND GOT RAVE REVIEWS.. PEOPLE COULD NOT STOP EATING THEM, THEY WERE SUPERB..GO PAULA, KEEP THE RECIPES COMING.............................
