The recipe calls for 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, but I cut back the butter, and sometimes leave it out all together. As for the parmesan it is only to sprinkle on top so just add the cheese to your log if you use it.

  1. Peel shrimp and devein. Saute peppers and garlic in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until throughly heated. Note: (you could and should slice open peppers to remove seeds to tone down the heat. Depending on pepper size, one large will do. You adjust to taste.)
