1 pound unpeeled large shrimp
stick of butter
3 tablespoons olive oil

4 cloves garlic, minced
a sprinkle of oregano 1/2 teaspoon should do

black pepper to taste

Set the shrimp aside and place all of the spices and seasonings in a small pot and simmer for a few minutes.  Set the oven temp to 350º.  Place the shrimp into a baking dish, toss in the sauce and bake for about 12-15 minutes until shrimp are done…
