New Orleans BBQ Shrimp


This is a pretty traditional New Orleans BBQ Shrimp recipe. It doesn't contain BBQ sauce, and it's certainly not cooked on the grill.  Who knows why they call it that, but you can for sure call it good.  The sauce is perfect for dunking a piece of French bread into.  It is a very quick and easy dish.  And it is a darn tasty treat!

NEW ORLEANS BBQ SHRIMP
1 lb colossal shrimp, peeled, tails on
1/4 C Worcestershire sauce
Juice of one lemon
1 T Cajun seasoning
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 C real butter
1/4 C white wine
2 T olive oil
Hot sauce, to taste
2-3 sliced green onions
1/4 C Italian parsley, chopped
French bread

Melt the butter in a large skillet and add in the olive oil.  Put the garlic in and stir quickly, cooking about 30 seconds.  Add in the wine, Worcestershire sauce, and Cajun seasoning. Cook a couple of minutes to reduce.  Add in the shrimp, parsley, lemon juice, and hot sauce to taste.  Cook the shrimp until they are pink and completely done, about 3 to 4 minutes for large shrimp.  Remove from heat and sprinkle the green onions over the top.  Serve in bowls with the sauce ladled over the top.  Serve with the French bread.

NOTE:  The sauce separates when leftover, so it should all be eaten right after cooking.
