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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
