barbecue shrimp {15 minute summer supper}

alabama gulf barbecue shrimpthe first thing you should know is that the title is misleading
{no need to fire up the barbie}

the 411
what identifies this classic new orleans-style dish is the signature worcestershire-spiked butter sauce
generally oven-baked, i like to make it on the stove top for a fast summer meal

RKG Original Small MonogramBarbecue Shrimp
makes 2 to 4 servings
w/ french bread for sopping

{you’ll be peeling ‘em in 15 min}

1/2 cup butter, cut into 8 pieces
2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp tabasco sauce
juice of 1 lemon
3 small garlic cloves, pressed
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1 Tbsp creole seasoning
1 1/2 lb {16-20 count} unpeeled shrimp

1.) combine butter & next 7 ingredients in a large skillet over medium high heat
stir until the butter melts & begins to bubble

2.) add the shrimp to the skillet,  tossing to coat w/ the butter mixture
saute until the shrimp turn pink & they’re cooked through
{about 5 to 6 min}

good to know

salt levels can vary in Creole seasonings & blends
{i used Tony Chachere’s}

i chopped extra parsley to sprinkle over the shrimp just before serving…
that’s just who i am
{a visual nuisance to myself at times}

place the skillet in the center of the supper table & dig in
{no fancy serving pieces required}
