This delicious recipe comes from Pennie Mills. The name Barbecued Shrimp Lafayette conjures up an image of good friends, good food and good wine. Make sure you have lots of paper napkins for catching the delicious hot butter sauce that's sure to drip as you dip French bread into it.
preheat oven to 450 degrees
3 lbs. large shrimp washed & deveined with shell & tail on
place shrimp in a glass baking dish & sprinkle generously with peppers & garlic
Heat ingredients in a small saucepan
1lb butter or margarine
1/3cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
pour sauce over shrimp
1. Cook in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, stir and cook a bit more if needed.
Oven temps vary a great deal & this dish cooks fast, so it is best to keep a close eye on it so it does not over cook, when the shrimp has turned white you know it is done.
2. When done take out of the oven, stir to coat shrimp with sauce, sprinkle with 2 tsps kosher salt & let stand for 3 minutes
Use the remainder hot butter sauce for dipping & serve with french bread.
