New Orleans “BBQ” Shrimp


There’s nothing really BBQ about this. No sauce, no grill, don’t really know why it’s called that, just is 😉 I kind of made up this version, based on a bunch of different recipes that I saw.


2 lbs fresh shrimp (head off/tail on)
1/2 c melted butter
1/2 c Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Hot Sauce
2 Bay Leaves
Cajun Seasoning (Tony Cachere’s)
1 lemon, sliced

Place cleaned shrimp in oven safe casserole or pyrex dish and season with Tony’s. Mix together next 5 ingredients and pour over shrimp. Put sliced lemon in dish and mix all together.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, stirring a few times, until all shrimp are pink and cooked through.


Now it’s time do get down and dirty. Make sure you have a roll of paper towels handy and a loaf of french bread to sop up all that glorious juice.
