The recipe lists one pound of shell on shrimp toward the end of the ingredients list. I would think a size would be recommended though (I'd go BIG!)

One thing about larger-sized shrimp is that you may have issues with having the alimentary canal present, which would require removal of that; I have found that you can often avoid this by using smaller-sized shrimp.

Deveining shrimp is not that difficult and you could always go the E-Z peel route (shell left on, vein removed).

I think that medium size shrimp have more flavor & better texture than large shrimp. Large shrimp are tough & chewy.

Isn't it wonderful that we can disagree on our preferences?
