  • 1 Medium Lemon
  • 1 cup Salted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Garlic
  • 4 Bay Leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Sweet Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 1-½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • 24 Colossal Shrimp 12 To 15 Per Lb., Raw Unshelled


  • Cut the lemon in half crosswise and juice it. Press each lemon half flat on a cutting board, and then cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
  • Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and add the lemon juice and peel, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaves, paprika, cayenne, salt, ground pepper, and cracked pepper. Stir and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the shrimp and increase the heat to medium. Cook until the shrimp are beginning to turn pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Cover the skillet and remove it from the heat.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes so that the shrimp can absorb the flavors and finish cooking, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
  • Que aproveche!
