Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 8


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana hot sauce - more if you like it spicy!
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 2 pound uncooked peeled or unpeeled shrimp
  • 2 to 3 lemons
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • Extra hot sauce
  • French bread - for dipping


  • In a pan, melt butter.
  • Stir in Worcestershire sauce, juice from half a lemon, hot sauce and garlic.
  • Place shrimp in a casserole dish.
  • Pour sauce over shrimp and toss to coat.
  • Toss several lemon slices in with the shrimp. 
  • Bake shrimp covered in foil in a preheated 375-degree oven for 15 to 30 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink, stirring twice.
  • Serve the shrimp with parsley on top, fresh lemon wedges, extra hot sauce and French bread for dipping in the sauce.


This makes a great appetizer or even a fun dinner served with a big salad! In the summer I do this on a grill in a foil pan. No need to even cover it with foil. The minute the shrimp turns pink, it’s done! It’s so good! Always a hit! Make sure to serve with plenty of napkins!
