Notes

I'll plate these with a side salad, a small ramekin of sauce, (or use a squeeze bottle), and put a shaker of the seasoning on the table.
As an alternative and somewhat more elegant presentation, I'll toss the shrimp in sauce, and serve on a bed of carbs.  Rice, Noodles, Grits, etc.  But this is a finger food meal.
 On shrimp sizes, so far as I am concerned, the bigger the better, (unless I am doing a shrimp salad).
"Jumbo" are usually 16/20 count per pound so that a decent serving of 3 oz is 4-5 shrimp.  Yes this is scaled for two, and I'm using 8-10 per plate.  (As long as i am cooking, let's make sure people are full)
I'd LOVE to find a decent supplier of tiger prawns which can run 7-9 ounces each, Talk about a shrimp taco....
Usually the largest you can find is the "Extra Colossal" at 5-6 per pound, but that is a special trip to a special seafood market.
In all cases, ignore the adjectives and look for the count per pound.  Also in ALL CASES, if it smells fishy in the case, go look at the chicken ...
 
Any left over from the first serving can be refrigerated and served on a bed of lettuce with sauce as a shrimp cocktail, snack later
