Louisiana Barbecued Shrimp

Serve these on newspaper-covered table with lots of napkins. Have French bread to sop up oil. Add cold beer and green salad for a great combination.


  • 2 pounds medium-size shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Lemon juice
  • Pepper sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Butter


  1. Place whole shrimp, with shells on, in single layer in ovenproof dish.
  2. Drizzle olive oil on top of shrimp.
  3. Pepper shrimp until they are black — when you think you have enough pepper, add more.
  4. Add lots of salt, lemon juice, pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Remember, you are seasoning through the shells.
  5. Cut up butter on top of shrimp and broil until cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.
