this oxymoron is worth the money: jumbo shrimp

i bought shrimp at the midwest seafood event. 18-20 count per pound, on sale for 9.99/lb.
it's so much easier and quicker to serve shrimp when there are fewer pieces to prepare. before grilling, i pulled off the legs and almost all the shell (leaving on the last piece meant the tail would stay on till they hit the plate, and they were simple to devein and butterfly before going on the grill).
this is the shrimp on the bed of quinoa and vegetables described in the last post. i threw little cups of the bell peppers onto the grill just long enough to soften, and then used them as an edible garnish version of stuffed peppers.
