New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

Just thinking of this dish is making my mouth water. I was first introduced to New Orleans style BBQ shrimp by my Aunt Melissa who sent me the recipe, which I tried at home and immediately fell in love. There's no way to describe how delicious this combo of buttery lemon, Worcestershire, rosemary and garlic, is. It's just. Wow.

The dish is meant to be eaten from the pan or a shared dish, along with a hunk of fresh, crusty bread to dip in the buttery, lemony, smoky sauce. Every time I make this dish I wish there was more bread, more sauce, more shrimp. Makes a great appetizer, or with a fresh side salad, a great entree.


1 stick Butter, cut into small pieces

3 cloves Garlic, minced (about 1 TBS)

1 TBS finely chopped fresh Rosemary

1/3 cup fresh Lemon Juice (from 2 lemons), rinds reserved & sliced into strips
