Buttery Italian Shrimp

I love shrimp... I have a hard time cooking it at times, I know that I cook it too long and that is the problem. This recipe made it simple to have great tasting shrimp turn out fabulous! This was some delicious shrimp that was easy to throw together. Not the healthiest way to eat shrimp, but pair it with a healthy side and it's still a great way to go!
