We generally serve this an an appetizer, but you could use this as a main dish. Serving sizes are for entree portions, not appetizers. This recipe uses fresh shrimp, not frozen. For the simplest recipes, fresh is best!!!

  1. Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails intact. Set the shrimp aside. (Keep cold, over ice).
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the lemon juice, shallots/green onions, parsley, garlic, salt, and hot sauce. Stir well to combine.
  3. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer in a large shallow baking pan. Brush the shrimp with the butter mixture. Sprinkle with the paprika. Broil 6 inches from heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink, basting frequently with the butter mixture. Serve immediately. Offer the butter mixture left in the cooking pan as a dip/sauce for the shrimp.
