    Chef Boy'R'Brandon's Note:

    First and foremost, I have no clue why this recipe is called Barbecued Shrimp, as there is no Barbecue involved. . . That being said, this recipe is excellent, and I highly recommend you give it a try. I shamelessly stole this recipe out of Ralph Brennan’s New Orleans Seafood Cookbook and simply love the flavor of the shrimp. Give it a try and tell me what you think!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the unpeeled shrimp, Worcestershire, spices, garlic and 1 tablespoon of water in a heavy 10-inch sautee pan. Squeeze the juice from the lemon half over the shrimp and add rind and pulp to the pan.
    2. 2
      Over high heat, cook the shrimp while gently stirring and occasionally turning the shrimp.
    3. 3
      After about two minutes of cooking, the shrimp should start turning pink on both sides, indicating they are nearly half cooked.
    4. 4
      If the shrimp are the colossal size, now add 2 tablespoons water to the pan. Otherwise, don’t add water.
    5. 5
      Reduce the heat to medium-high and continue cooking as you gradually add the cold pieces of butter to the pan. While stirring the shrimp, swirl the butter pieces until they are incorporated into the pan juices, the sauce turns light brown and creamy as it simmers, and the shrimp are just cooked through. This will take about two minutes total if the shrimp are extra-large and about three minutes if they are colossal.
    6. 6
      Serve immediately with crusty bread for sopping up the sauce and lots of napkins for cleaning your hands. Makes two servings.
    7. 7
      Note: If you can’t find shrimp with the heads on, still be sure and use unpeeled shrimp.

      This is a great recipe! I doubled it, except for the butter, and was a little concerned about the amount of pepper, but it was perfect. We used bread, as suggested. The entire family loved it. Thanks for sharing.
