My mom has the best recipe for shrimp, and it's one of those "eyeball it" recipes ... her hand-written notes that are in my big, pre-Pinterest three ring binder contain not a single measurement. Just ingredients and instructions.
The recipe is called "Barbecue Shrimp" but it's about the furthest thing from a true barbecue flavor. And there is no barbecue sauce in it. We're a bit perplexed by the name, but that's how it was shared with her by a friend, so Barbecue Shrimp it is.
I thawed half of a large bag of frozen shrimp under running water, added it to an 8x8 glass pan, and gave it several shakes of black pepper. When you think you're done, ADD MORE PEPPER. Seriously. Then add to the whole glass pan several shakes of Texas Pete or Tabasco (I'm a Texas Pete girl myself) and a healthy dose of Worcestershire sauce. I just call that last ingredient Lea & Perrins because I can't pronounce "Worcestershire" without getting all tongue-tied.
Then you just put some pats of butter all over the top and broil the dish until the shrimp are nice and pink and done. And that's all I got for ya regarding instructions.
I'm sorry they are not more precise ... if you have any questions, email me or leave the questions in the comments!
PS: Make some crusty bread to go with this shrimp; it creates the most amazing broth for dipping crusty, buttery bread in.
