- Oven Notes - You can do this recipe in the oven, you will lose the smokey flavor. Use a glass baking dish - oven to 350 - for about 10 - 13 minutes or so.
- Note - The prime internal temp for shrimp to be done is 120 degrees. It will have a firm bite and will be orange. Going too much over that temp can turn them rubbery to the bite.
