I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
...in your mind.



  • 2 cups butter (4 sticks)
  • 2 pounds shrimp, shell on, but deveined
  • 6 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt, smoked salt if you have, if not no big
  • 6-8 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • Lemons for serving


  1. Heat oven to broil
  2. In a large cast iron pan or baking dish, thinly slice and spread out 2 sticks of the butter to cover bottom of pan
  3. Sprinkle half the pepper over the butter, then put in the shrimp in as much of a single layer as possible, use a couple pans if necessary, season with the salt
  4. Add the garlic, the paprika, the remaining butter and then the rest of the pepper
  5. Broil, about 6 to 8 inches away from the heat until shrimp are nicely pink, you don’t need to flip them - this could be anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t overcook
  6. Peel, eat, peel eat, peel, eat and serve with lots of warm, crusty bread for dipping and ice cold beers for, well that should be obvious
