Buttery Cajun Shrimp
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
2 pounds medium to large shrimp
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients except shrimp in a wide ovenproof skillet or baking pan
just large enough to hold the shrimp in one layer. Place the pan in the oven to
Add the shrimp and stir to coat with butter mixture.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are pink and
opaque. Remove from oven just as they become pink. They will cook another minute
or 2 in the hot skillet.
The shrimp will exude a lot of juice and give you a generous
amount of sauce for pouring over bread or potatoes or to use for dipping.
Serves 4 to 6.
