Preheat oven to 450 °F.

Wash and drain shrimp, and place in a shallow baking pan. In a saucepan, melt the butter, add the garlic, and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour butter mixture over shrimp and toss to coat. Pepper shrimp until shrimp are well covered. Bake until pink, approximately 5 minutes, turn, bake a few minutes longer, and pepper again. You must use a heavy hand with the pepper.

Serve shrimp with warm bread and salad.
