BBQ Shrimp

This is incredibly good. Serve outside with lots of french bread to sop up the sauce and plenty of cold beer or wine.

Serves 2 or 3 for dinner, 4 as a first course

1 lb large shrimp in the shell

1tsp cayenne
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/8 tsp oregano
1/4 lb + 5 tbl butter
1 1/2 tsp garlic
1 tsp worcestershire sauce

1/2 C clam juice or shrimp stock
1/4 cup beer at room temperature
1 tsp lemon juice

Rinse shrimp.

Combine everything but shrimp, clam juice, beer and lemon juice in a large skillet. When the butter melts add the shrimp and cook 2 minutes. Add clam juice and cook 2 minutes. Add beer and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve in bowls.

  1. This is a wonderful recipe. Spread the table with lots of newspapers, add zillions of napkins and crusty french bread. Ummmm good.
