Glad to see you suggest peeling the shrimp. I ordered something similar once in Chinatown and it was so diappointing to have to peel the shrimp before eating them.

Pictures look great, too!

You sound like my daughter, Vera. She loves shrimp, but she hates to peel them. When we have boiled shrimp, I usually peel them for her...she may be 37, but she's still my baby.

I never mind pealing shrimp if they as simply made as peal and eat. However even leaving the tail on with sauces like tomato or in pots of heavy stock I find unappealing and avoid dishes like that. I do see it alot in Asian, Italian and Cajun cooking though from time to time. I also understand it adds flavor to the shrimp but just don't care for having to get my fingers into these dishes at all.

I've only seen salt & pepper prawns unpeeled - I think you must lose a lot of the seasoning & flavour on the shells.

Looks good - I wish the others here would eat sea food & I could do things like this.
