      Add the sherry and shrimp, turn up the heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the juices have reduced by half. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and serve with crusty bread and a crisp salad.


    You can use shell-on shrimp if you prefer for this dish-provide a finger bowl and napkins, though!
