Salt and Pepper Shrimp

Salt and Pepper Shrimp

One of my favorite restaurants does a version of this dish that I love, and I probably order it once a month.  They use smaller shrimp and leave the shells on, then fry them and top them with a sweet-and-hot pepper dice.  You eat them shell and all, and they are crispy, spicy, and delicious.  […]
