DO NOT USE HIGH HEAT WHEN COOKING SHRIMP! With high heat, the shrimp overcooks, as mine did. Should've followed my gut and cooked over medium heat. The overcooked shrimp is the only reason I couldn't give 5 stars. Other than that, this recipe is absolutely fantastic and delicious. I used only 2 tbl lemon juice and substituted 1/4 cup diced roasted red peppers (from jar) for the red pepper flakes (personal preference). Those were my only changes. Do NOT skip the brine. It's a vital part of the overall flavor. Next time, I would skip directions #1 and 2, beginning with #3, adding the butter and shrimp to that line. I would also cook no higher than medium heat for the entire recipe. Served this over linguine. I only wish there were leftovers for today, but sadly we ate every last morsel. Thanks for posting the recipe! It's a keeper!
