Ingredients

  • 1 pound large shrimps (31-40 size )
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

  • Twist the head to remove and discard. Using a pair of scissors, cut the shell starting from the head along the middle of the body all the way to the tail. Using a small, sharp knife, make an incision on the length of the shrimps but not cutting through.
  • Pry open to butterfly, making sure to leave shell intact. Gently rinse in cold running water to remove intestinal tract. Drain well.
  • In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, and sugar. Stir together until well-distributed and sugar is dissolved. 
  • Spoon about a teaspoonful of the cheese-mayo mixture on each shrimp and spread to cover exposed flesh.
  • Bake in a 400 F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through and the top is golden and bubbly. Remove from heat and serve hot.
