I'll certainly never fix this any other way! What a great recipe, in the taste and the ease of it. I had to try and make it to serve 4, but even then I got more guests, which I LOVE to get. 2 pounds of shrimp served 6 very well, because the sauce and the bread are really the spotlight here. My mom said she could be happy with just the "juice" and the bread! I used 2 pounds large shrimp, 2 sticks butter, 1 teaspoon worcestershire, 4 garlic cloves, minced, (we love garlic!) 5 shots tapatio, I think about a tablespoon, and about 1/1/2 cups of a good chardonnay,and it was just nice and spicey! Fantastic recipe, I've been patted on the back so many times today, this Mother's Day! Hey LBWs-Dad, this is going down in family history! THANKS!
