If you like your shrimp with a "kick" then this recipe if for you! This will serve 2-3 people as a main coarse or 3-4 people an appetizer with using 28 large shrimp, you can double the recipe, these shrimp are amazing, and a must serve with warm crusty bread to dip into the sauce. If you want you can season the shrimp and chill for a couple of hours to marinate before continuing with the recipe, but that is optional, also you can double the butter, Worcestershire sauce, fresh lemon juice and garlic for more sauce.
