  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole dried rosemary leaves (measured, then finely chopped)

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Instructions



  1. For Barbecue Butter, soften butter at room temperature to 70-80 degrees F.

Refrigerate to 40 degrees F. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
  2. For Shrimp, pour olive oil in a hot sauté pan. Add shrimp to the sauté pan and cook on one side for 1 to 2 minutes. (Don't crowd; if necessary, use 2 pans. A 12-inch pan will accommodate 1 pound of shrimp.) Reduce heat to medium, turn shrimp, and add the chopped green onion. Cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add white wine and cook until reduced to 1/4 cup. Stir in 1 cup cold Barbecue Butter (reserve the remainder for another use), reduce heat to low and cook and stir frequently until shrimp are just done (white throughout, moist and tender), approximately 1 1/2 minutes. Take care not to overcook the shrimp.
  4. Serve immediately in a bowl preheated to 160 degrees F.
