Instructions for New Orleans Style Barbecue Shrimp

In a large skillet, combine shrimp, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, black peppers, Creole seasoning, and garlic. Cook over moderately high heat until shrimp turns pink, about 1 minute on each side.

Reduce heat to moderate and stir in butter, a few cubes at a time, stirring constantly and adding more only when butter is melted. Remove skillet from heat.

Place shrimp in a bowl and pour sauce over top. Serve in a bowl, such as our Starfish Oval Bowl, with lots of hot French bread to sop up the sauce!

Pair it with a refreshing white wine that can be deliciously sipped from our Venice All-Purpose Clear Glass, and kept cold in our Organic Pearl Orlando Ice Bucket.
