Description

This dish is best shared with a table full of friends and family. And it absolutely couldn’t be simpler: you throw a bunch of shrimp in a baking pan and douse it with a heavenly mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire, Tabasco, salt, pepper, and butter. Then you broil it to perfection and serve on a table covered with newspapers, because it’s super messy!

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds (more Or Less) Unpeeled Shrimp (21-26 Count Or Larger)
  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 3 whole Lemons (juice Of)
  • ¼ cups (to 1/2 Cup) Worcestershire Sauce
  • Tabasco
  • 1 stick Butter

Preparation

First, thoroughly rinse raw shrimp w/shells still on. I use 21-26 count (that means 21-26 shrimp per pound) but I’ve certainly used bigger. Any smaller than this, and it’s difficult to peel, so stick with 21-26 or bigger. Place the shrimp in a large baking pan in a single layer. Over top of the shrimp drizzle about ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil.

Generously sprinkle black pepper over top of the shrimp. Be very generous! Now sprinkle generously with salt (I use kosher).

Squeeze the juice of about 3-4 lemons over top of all of the shrimp. Now GENEROUSLY drizzle Worcestershire all over the shrimp, about ¼ to ½ a cup. Drizzle Tabasco sauce over the top to your desired temperature. Some like it hot.

Now grab your stick of butter and cut it into pats. Place the pats of butter on top of the shrimp as evenly spaced as possible.

Place the pan of shrimp under the broiler in your oven for just about 10 minutes until the shrimp are no longer translucent. Serve with a roll of crusty French bread because you need something to absorb all of the glorious juices.

Butter? Check. Shrimp? Check. Tabasco spiciness? Check. Okay, then. That sounds like pretty much all I need.

This is one of our favorite shrimp recipes. It is a fun family style meal as we put the shrimp trays on the table with an empty tray to throw the shells on. The only addition I have is we add Old Bay Seasoning with the salt and pepper.

Have made this several times and really enjoy it. Easy to prep and great flavor. This is one of my two go-to shrimp recipes.

O M Gosh! This was incredible. I used garlic pepper in place of regular pepper. Will make again!

An easy, yummy snack / meal – a perfect way to end the weekend!! I cut this recipe down for less shrimp but I will definitely make this again with more shrimp! :)
