Nancy and I loved eating at this hole in the wall restaurant in Marina Del Ray called Killer Shrimp. It was in a strip mall and didn't have much character, but their "killer" shrimp drew a loyal crowd. I recently heard that it had closed, so I've tried to recreate it with help from a few others who have tried. I think what most the other versions you'll find online are missing is the true amount of black pepper used. i remember asking them what made it so spicy, and the answer was "lots and lots of black pepper". If you're squeamish about the cup of butter, try using some olive oil instead. I'd at least use a half a cup of butter though, as it adds an irreplaceable richness to the sauce. Enjoy!

  1. Add all ingredients except the wine and the shrimp to a large pot and bring to a boil Reduce to a low simmer and cook for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Add the wine and cook for an additional 1 hour.
  3. Just before serving, stir in the shrimp and cook about 3 minutes until shrimp are opaque. Serve the shrimp in a bowl, almost totally covered with broth, and with bread for soaking up all the yummy broth. This is also great over linguini, which is another way it was offered at the restaurant. You'll still want bread for sponging at the end.

              This recipe sounds awesome J Spot. I'd dare say littleneck clams and mussels would stir in and be just as fabulous, with the extra reinforcement of the bi-valves' liquors to further the taste bud orgy that seafood, wine and butter create!!!

                Killer Shrimp closed and opened again in the Marina. I have recreated this recipe over and over. I love it!

                    I make a New Orleans BBQ shrimp which is similar to this. The Black Pepper you are looking for is called Sarawack. Sarawack is much spicier than the cheap stuff.
