My husband fell in love with this dish on a business trip to New Orleans and decided I had to learn how to make it. The good news there is I got to go to New Orleans, not just for that but it worked in my favor. I found the recipe there and we love to eat this dish on special occasions.

*Note this is not BBQ as in typical BBQ sauce. This dish has New Orleans style "kick" (in other words spicy). It is a must to serve this with crusty french bread to soak up the sauce. A salad or greens beans are a nice accompaniment too.

Ingredients

2 lb
fresh shrimp, peeled and deviened
1 stick
butter
1/2 c
olive oil
1 Tbsp
soy sauce
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
2
bay leaves
1 Tbsp
black pepper
1 tsp
cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp

1/4 tsp
oregano
1 1/2 tsp

1 Tbsp
Tobasco sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all ingredients except shrimp and warm until butter is melted. This can be done in microwave or oven at 350 degrees. I use the microwave.
2
Add shrimp and cook until shrimp are pink, this won't take long usually 5 minutes. If using microwave watch carefully checking every 1-2 minutes so you don't end up with tough shrimp which would ruin the dish.
