Eric has a friend that lives in Orange Beach and when he comes to visit he always brings us a ton of shrimp. Not just tiny shrimp, these are jumbo shrimp and so delicious. He also brings us crates of sweet corn which is also delicious. With that in mind and the fact that I am protesting the grocery store while being overdue I was so happy when I stumbled upon a yummy shrimp recipe in July's Southern Living because I could easily cook it up with what we had at home.
Here is the recipe for the best shrimp you will ever cook. Of course in true fashion I didn't have all of the ingredients so my subs are in italics.
Big Easy Barbecue Shrimp
3 lb unpeeled, large raw shrimp
3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Worchestershire sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
3 bay leaves
2 lemons, sliced
2 Tbsp. Old Bay seasoning - used cajun seasoning
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
2 Tbsp. Asian chili-garlic sauce - used 1 tsp garlic
2 tsp. hot sauce - didn't have
1 French bread baguette
Preheat oven to 325. Place shrimp in a shallow aluminim foil lined broiler pan. Stir together butter and next 8 ingredients over low heat until butter melts; pour over shrimp. Bake 25 minutes, stiring and turning shrimp after 10 minutes. Serve with French bread. Serves 6.
I think 25 minutes is a bit too long so check your shrimp at 20 minutes.
We also cooked some of the sweet corn and used the french bread to soak up all of the sauce. I think the shrimp would also be great served over rice. Such a great and EASY meal!
