To make broiled heads-on shrimp, start by heating extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan, and adding the shrimp to saute them for five minutes. Once the shrimp are pink in color, they are ready to go in the oven for ten minutes. Lowering the temperature of the stovetop, the shrimp are then simmered in white wine for ten minutes. The shrimp can be dipped in their white wine sauce and peeled at the table by your guests. Our fresh heads-on white shrimp are a great option for this recipe.

Shrimp scampi is a classic American dish, known for its simplicity and rich, buttery flavor. To make the butter mixture, combine butter, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Lay the shrimp on a baking sheet, placing them close together. Evenly distribute the butter mixture across the shrimp, adding a thin layer of white wine and chicken or seafood broth before baking the shrimp for five minutes. Squeeze additional lemon juice on top of the shrimp and sprinkle them with paprika before baking for an additional eight minutes.
