New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp my version

Yummy shrimp and easy to make. Sounds like a lot of butter but you don't serve a lot of sauce with the shrimp and you can keep the extra sauce for other uses. I have poached lobster and fish in the remaining sauce for other meals.

How to Make New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp my version


  • 1In large saucepan combine all ingredients except shrimp and butter.
  • 2Bring sauce to a simmer and start incorporating the butter a couple of cubes at a time. When butter is melted add a couple more keep stirring until butter is melted. Don't add butter all at once it won't emulsify into a sauce.
  • 3When you have four pieces of butter left add the shrimp and keep incorporating the butter. Cook just until the shrimp is pink.
  • 4Serve the shrimp with sauce ladled over it and lots of crusty bread to soak up the sauce.
