How to Make Broiled Shrimp

We don’t have a video for this broiled shrimp recipe because it was just a spur of the moment dish we cooked up one Monday night here at our home in Baton Rouge. It was so darn good we decided to put the recipe up for y’all. Here’s how I made the broiled shrimp we cooked up last night –
