Number of Servings: 8


    3 pounds (more Or Less) Unpeeled Shrimp (21-26 Count Or Larger)
    cups Olive Oil
    Salt And Pepper, to taste
    3 whole Lemons (juice Of)
    cups (to 1/2 Cup) Worcestershire Sauce
    1 stick Butter


First, thoroughly rinse raw shrimp w/shells still on. I use 21-26 count (that means 21-26 shrimp per pound) but Ive certainly used bigger. Any smaller than this, and its difficult to peel, so stick with 21-26 or bigger. Place the shrimp in a large baking pan in a single layer. Over top of the unpeeled shrimp drizzle about cup of extra virgin olive oil.

Generously sprinkle black pepper over top of the shrimp. Be very generous! Now sprinkle generously with salt (I use kosher).

Squeeze the juice of about 3-4 lemons over top of all of the shrimp. Now GENEROUSLY drizzle Worcestershire all over the shrimp, about to a cup. Drizzle Tabasco sauce over the top to your desired temperature. Some like it hot.

Now grab your stick of butter and cut it into pats. Place the pats of butter on top of the shrimp as evenly spaced as possible.

Place the pan of shrimp under the broiler in your oven for just about 10 minutes until the shrimp are no longer translucent. Serve with a roll of crusty French bread because you need something to absorb all of the glorious juices. Peel and eat!
