Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom loved this recipe for special occasions. The first time she made it, she thought 2 pounds of shrimp would be plenty for everyone. But by the time it came out of the oven, it looked like the shrimp had reduced down to about half the amount. So make sure you double the recipe if you want to have enough to feed a crowd!
