    Lorac's Note:

    Great with beer or ice cold white wine. The spicy butter sauce is perfect with the seasoned shrimp. Recipe from "Food and Wine Cookbook".

      I used Chipotle Garlic Butter in place of the butter called for in this recipe. Adding the Worcestershire and lemon juice. Thanks for the Spicy Goodness.

      Loved the sauce, had alot leftover so used it the next night to dip a boiled artichoke in, yummmmy!!!!! Would have been perfect but I may have boiled the shrimp a bit too long, a little tough to peel but very very tasty!!!

      This is a fantastic recipe. I made it for our Menu #334! The cayenne-spiced sauce was positively addictive! Thanks for posting this recipe!!
