  • Scant 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • Scant 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole dried rosemary leaves (measured, then finely chopped)
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons water


  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil

Barbecue Butter

  1. Soften butter at room temperature to 70 to 80 degrees F. Place butter in mixing bowl; add pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, rosemary, garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, and water. Whip on high speed 3 minutes or until thoroughly blended. Refrigerate to 40 degrees F. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve immediately in a bowl preheated to 160 degrees F.
