BBQ ShrimpPosted: February 24, 2012
it’s officially Lent and that means
i have to quit chewing my nails for Lent that i can no longer eat meat on fridays. see, i AM a good catholic boy. so i’ll be posting food porn based on non-meat meals. tonight i feature, BBQ Shrimp. now BBQ shrimp is AMAZING!!!! i should also point out fellah’s that it’s a VERY sexy dish to make for a date. you have to eat it with your hands and it’s messy. food+messy+using your hands=TINGLE CRACK. you can cook this in a relatively short time and it can even be ladled over pasta (i prefer linguine or angel hair). i’d recommend making it once with a 1/2 lb of shrimp and 1/4 of the ingredients listed. adjust the worchestershire sauce and seasonings to suit you. then when you cook for her it’ll be battle-ready. you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make.so….let’s get to it. you need:
- 2 lbs unpeeled shrimp
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- juice of 2 lemons
- 2-4 teaspoons cajun seasoning (or seasoning salt)
- 3-6 cloves of chopped garlic (i use 3 TBS of garlic paste….i’m lazy)
- 2 1/2 sticks os butter, cubed
- 2-4 TBS cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
- French bread (or a baguette, cut in half…..then cut into 3-4″ slices)
place all the ingredients in a roasting pan (3 qt works fine). you basically want a layer 2 shrimp deep. place the rack in the center of your oven, and place the shrimp under the broiler. cook in 4 minute intervals, remove from oven, stir and place back in the oven for another 4 minutes. it’s usually done after 4 passes in the oven. plate and serve with the french bread slices.
