    Amazingly easy and yummy! I used avocado oil (to reduce cholesterol) and it came out fantastic. About half of the shrimp were fully cooked (all curled up) after 9 minutes and I removed these while the other cooked. I have a gas oven and I peeled my shrimp before cooking (so all the yummy good stuff was directly on the meat) and this seemed to reduce the suggested cooking time. I will definitely be making this dish again!
