Worcestershire sauce, garlic, butter, and herbs – once you try Chef JJ’s BBQ Shrimp, your taste buds may never crave your go-to shrimp recipe again.
2 pounds jumbo shrimp
1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
Cracked black pepper
1 small onion, small diced
4 garlic cloves, smashed
1 cup Worcestershire
3 lemons, juiced
1 bunch thyme
1 bunch rosemary
2 bay leaves
¾ cup chopped tomato
½ cup lager
1-2 sticks butter
Grilled French baguette for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix the shrimp, Creole seasoning, salt, and lots of cracked black pepper until well combined.
Heat a large cast-iron pan over medium-high to high heat with grapeseed oil and sear the shrimp for a few seconds on each side. Remove to a plate.
Add a bit more oil if needed, then add the onion and garlic and cook over medium-high heat until browned. Stir to combine and season with some salt.
Add the Worcestershire and lemon juice and reduce to au sec (there shouldn’t be a lot of liquid left).
Add the thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, and tomato, and stir into the mixture.
Add the shrimp back into the pan along with the beer and stir the mixture together while continuously simmering.
Put the cast iron pan in the oven and finish cooking the BBQ shrimp.
Pull the shrimp from the oven and stir in the butter. Serve with the grilled bread.
