ingredients

directions

  • Combine mix and store in glass jar, tightly sealed.
  • In heavy skillet over high heat combine 4 oz.
  • butter,garlic, worcestershire and seasoning mix.
  • When butter is melted, add shrimp.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, shaking pan back and forth.
  • DON'T STIR!
  • Add remaining butter, stock and beer.
  • Cook for an additional 2 minutes, shaking the pan.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Serve immediately in bowl with lots of french bread to soak up the sauce.
  • *Shaking the pan in a back and forth motion, along with the additional of the stock helps keep the sauce from separating and having an oil texture.
  • Stirring doesn't do the same.

    The recipe sounds OK but Chill failed to realize that on glass topped stoves there is no such thing as "shake the pan" unless you don't mind ruining the glass.....

    This is a great recipe - but pretty rich. My guests loved it and we all dipped our crustry french bread in the juice - great.

    YUMMO! I used to work in a restaurant 20 years ago that made NO BBQ shrimp. Over the years, I have tried to recreate the recipe, but never really came close. THIS IS IT! The only thing I changed is I reduced the butter to only 2 tablespoons for the whole dish - but what makes this dish was the spicy seasoning mix. I will make this often. THANK YOU!!!!

    This is pretty much nuclear hot. My husband loved it and had no problem with it, but the kids and I ate between gulps of milk to cool our mouths. Don't get me wrong, it is delicious, but if you are spice challenged, you might want to kick the cayenne down a notch. Thanks for sharing Chill!

    Absolutelty outstanding! The kids want to kiss the cook cuz its so addicting even tho it is quite spicy hot but you can't stop eating it!MMMMMMMMMMMM If you don't soak up all the sauce with bread, it can be added to a chicken stock soup with the addition of only fine egg noodles maybe a little broccoli, Guaranteed great gourmet taste. Keep em coming CHILL!
