DIRECTIONS

  • Pat shrimp dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and cayenne.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Cook half of shrimp, without moving, until spotty brown on one side, about 1 minute; transfer to large plate.
  • Repeat with remaining oil and shrimp.
  • Make sauce in empty skillet. Melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add flour, tomato paste, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in clam juice, beer, and Worcestershire, scraping up any browned bits, and bring to boil.
  • Return shrimp and accumulated juices to skillet.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes.
  • Off heat, stir in remaining butter until incorporated. Serve with French bread.
