Ruth's Chris Steak House Barbecue Shrimp Orleans

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Sandi (From CA)

Sautéed New Orleans style in reduced white wine, butter, garlic and spices, drenched with a delicious barbecue butter. Say it with me.... "Om......................" I have yet to try this, but will vouch for ANYthing from this restaurant.

Great recipe. I halved the butter recipe and it was enough for a lb. of shrimp. I was out of paprika, so used Old Bay Seasoning instead. I would do that again! I also used crushed pepper instead of cayenne. Next time I will double the green onions, and use about 6 stalks. This was quick and easy. I served it with fried rice and a nice salad!

Directions

  1. For Barbecue Butter -- Soften butter at room temperature to 70-80 degrees F. Place butter in mixing bowl; add pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, rosemary, garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, and water. Whip on high speed 3 minutes or until thoroughly blended. Refrigerate to 40 degrees F. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
  2. For Shrimp -- Pour olive oil in a hot sauté pan. Add shrimp to the sauté pan and cook on one side for 1 to 2 minutes. (Don't crowd; if necessary, use 2 pans. A 12-inch pan will accommodate 1 pound of shrimp.) Reduce heat to medium, turn shrimp, and add the chopped green onion. Cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add white wine and cook until reduced to 1/4 cup. Stir in 1 cup cold Barbecue Butter (reserve the remainder for another use), reduce heat to low and cook and stir frequently until shrimp are just done (white throughout, moist and tender), approximately 1 1/2 minutes. Take care not to overcook the shrimp.
  4. Serve immediately in a bowl preheated to 160 degrees F.
