Prep Time:8 minutes
Cook Time:5-6 Minutes
Total Time:22 minute
1 stick butter, divided
5-6 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
1/3 cup white cooking wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice of 1 medium lemon)
1 tablespoon Creole seasoning (I used Zatarains)
1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1 1/2 pounds deheaded fresh large Florida Pink Gulf Shrimp.
2 whole lemons cut into wedges
fresh parsley, minced
Melt 3/4 of the stick of butter in a large skillet. Add the minced garlic and saute 1 minute stirring constantly.
Add the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, wine, lemon juice, Creole seasoning and pepper to the pan and bring to a simmer. Saute until thickened and reduced by half.
Add the shrimp to the pan and cook while stirring for 5-6 minutes for large shrimp. If using medium shrimp cook for 4-5 minutes. Do not over cook or the shell will stick to the shrimp making them difficult to peel.
Immediately remove the cooked shrimp from the pan to a serving platter pouring all the creole barbecue sauce over the shrimp.
Garnish the platter with chopped fresh parsley and lemon wedges
Serve with Parsley Potatoes, corn wedges and French bread.
