Recipe by LauraT
"These tangy shrimp are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They can be individually plated for the appetizer of a sit down dinner, or kept warm in a chafing dish at a buffet or cocktail party. Simply insert a frilled toothpick in each shrimp and smother with the sauce!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and pepper to taste
steak sauce (e.g. A-1)
3 fluid ounces
dry sherry or Madeira
I followed the recipe and followed a recommendation of one reviewer, that claimed the A1 was too strong. I cut back to 2 tablespoons instead of the excessive 1/2 cup that it calls for. These were ok, and everyone "claimed" they liked them, but I didn't think they were very tasty. There are much better shrimp recipes out there. I will not make this again.
Tossed just-cooked shrimp with warm sauce then served. Nice compliment to the rest of our Super Bowl spread. A little too A1-y for me to rate it a perfect 5 stars.
mmmmmm really turned out good
The good news is the shrimp were all eaten - the bad news is that the sauce tasted too much like A-1. Nobody was raving about the sauce. Will I do this recipe again? Probably not. But I am glad we tried it. A-1 will remain a "beef" sauce.
