New Orleans-Style BBQ Shrimp

BBQ shrimp is a traditional dish from New Orleans. Despite the name, it has nothing to do with barbecue – instead it’s either cooked on the stove or in the oven. The dish is made with large fresh shrimp (shells on), butter, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.

The combination is baked or cooked on the stove, and it’s then traditionally served as an appetizer. BBQ shrimp are typically served with crusty french bread on the side to mop up the juices

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon ancho chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 pounds extra large or jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined, thawed if frozen

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 large cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, from 1 lemon

2 tablespoons water

3 scallions, dark green parts, thinly sliced

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON NEW ORLEANS-STYLE BBQ SHRIMP

In a bowl, mix the paprika, chili powder, cumin, sugar and salt together. Add the shrimp to the spices and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.

Over medium heat, melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet. Add the garlic and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for one minute. Do not brown. 

Over medium heat, add the shrimp and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the shrimp are almost cooked but still opaque in spots for 3 to 4 minutes. 

Add the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and water and cook until shrimp are done, 1 to 2 minutes more. Scatter the scallions over top and serve.
