Rosemary Shrimp

Well everyone, it’s that time of year again – The Gras. No, not the shirtless-Stephen-Graw variety, but the Mardi Gras. In its honor, the Nums have decided to hit you with some quintessentially Nawlins seafood recipes. This is one that Dot has pulled out many times, and it’s so buttery and satisfying that we know you won’t be disappointed. (Come to think of it, someone may have said that about The Shirtless Graw before, but that’s neither here nor there…)

This recipe originally hails from the much-regaled Heart & Soul Junior League cookbook under the name “Baked Shrimp Douglas,” but that frankly sounds too proper for a day that’s characterized by beads and boobs, so we took it down to plain ole English. Laissez le bon temps roulez! (I know that’s French and therefore a bizarre choice to follow-up a sentence about “plain ole English,” but I may have had too many Hurricanes, so don’t you judge me.)

2 lbs fresh medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1 clove garlic, minced

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all ingredients and place in 13x9x2 baking dish.
  3. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
  4. Serve in ramekins with Caesar salad and crusty French bread for dipping. This sauce is fatty-goodness gold, so you’ll want to be able to sop up every bite.

    I have made this. There is no better flavor combination than worcestershire, butter and shrimp. Make immediately if you haven’t.

    1/2 cup of butter is not 2 sticks….which is it?
