"From Kitchen Dreaming blog. With only five minutes in the oven, you can whip these up in no time. By altering the level of cayenne pepper and hot sauce, you can make these tickle your taste buds! Cook time allows time to preheat pans before adding shrimp. Allow extra prep time if your shrimp is shell-on!"
