New Orleans Barbecued Shrimp from Mr. B’s

Updated: Jan 4

Today is my 16th Anniversary. Happy Anniversary Peggy!!! My wife and I are renewing our vows on a beach on Roatan Honduras. I asked her what recipe she would like me to post. Her favorite dish is Barbecued Shrimp. Since I have already posted my version of this dish, I thought Mr. B’s version is a perfect dish to post. We have gone to Mr. B’s for Anniversary and Valentine’s dinners in the past.  One of my favorite restaurants.

16 Jumbo Shrimp (12 per pound, about 1 1/2 pounds), with heads and unpeeled

1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce

2 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice (about 2 Lemons)

2 teaspoons freshly ground Black Pepper

2 teaspoons Cracked Black Pepper

2 teaspoons Creole Seasoning

1 teaspoon minced Garlic

1  1/2 cups (3 sticks) cold unsalted Butter

French Bread as accompaniment

In a large skillet, combine shrimp, Worcestershire, lemon juice, black peppers, Creole seasoning, and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until shrimp turn pink, about 1 minute on each side. Reduce heat to moderate and stir in butter, a few cubes at a time, stirring constantly and adding more only when butter is melted. Remove skillet from heat. Place shrimp in a bowl and pour sauce on top. Serve with French Bread for dipping.

Enjoy!!!
