    Hi Katy's Mom! This recipe calls for Extra-Large Shrimp (26/30 per pound). Shrimp of this size will need 12 minutes to cook through. If you use smaller shrimp be sure to adjust your time accordingly. Sue Stetzel Taste of Home Magazine

    Has anybody tried this? I oven-bake shrimp all the time. It takes 5 or 6 minutes for them to turn pink at 400 degrees F., NOT 12-15 minutes!
