New Orleans-Style Barbecue Shrimp is far from what you think it would be. The dish is shrimp cooked tender in a spice and worcestershire sauce spiked butter sauce with butter with fresh lemon juice. The shrimp is typically cooked in the sauce, but I like to grill them to add a bit of smoky flavor before I toss them in the sauce. The shrimp come out tasting rich and wonderful and are incredibly simple to prepare. The shrimp are great over salads, rice or any other starch.
De-shell the shrimp leaving the last section and tail section shell on. Place the shrimp into a mixing bowl and add the olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt and the garlic. Toss until evenly coated and set aside and let marinate for 15 minutes.
In a saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter with the chili powder, black pepper, worcestershire sauce and remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Once butter has melted remove off heat and add the lemon juice. Mix until well combined.
Thread 4 shrimps onto each skewer and place on a medium hot grill. Turn over once the shrimps begin to color, about 3-5 minutes total. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 5 minutes before placing shrimp onto them. The shrimp can be broiled in the oven on high for about 5-6 minutes, flipping half way.
Push the shrimps off the skewers into a clean mixing bowl and pour the chili butter mixture and toss to coat.
Serve the shrimp warm right away.
