Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Print Friendly and PDF
This shrimp is so good, you will want to soak up its butter-garlic-lemon sauce with French bread. It is sometimes called Louisiana style barbecued shrimp although it is not cooked on a barbeque but in a skillet instead.  You can buy shrimp with its head on or off, whichever way you prefer. I like using Costco's jumbo prawns which are fresh and firm.

1 lb large shrimp, peeled
1 stick unsalted butter, cut up
1 T garlic, minced
1 T fresh rosemary, chopped fine
1/3 cup lemon juice (2 lemons) - Save the rinds
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
Pepper, freshly ground to taste

After squeezing the lemons, cut the rinds into round slices.  Heat a large skillet using medium-high heat. Melt the butter, then add the garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire, Tabasco, lemon juice and lemon rind slices. Season the shrimp with Kosher salt and pepper, then add to the skillet and cook for 3-4 min. Serve with crusty French bread or baguette.
