Jekyll Island Shrimp
50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
11 ingredients
2-4 servings
Named for the island off the coast of Georgia, this dish can serve as a rich appetizer or an elegant main dish! This comes from my "America Cooks" cookbook! I love it for it's simplicity and elegance! Hope you enjoy! Update: I have prepared this dish using frozen, cooked shrimp and as suggested by the comments from a reviewer, the shrimp were a little tough. Since the cooking time is to melt the butter and for the topping to get crisp, I would suggest reducing the cook time or using uncooked shrimp. I can say, even though the shrimp I used were a little tough, the taste was delicious! Hope this helps! Thanks!
