See for yourself in the video.

Cajun Barbecued Shrimp

1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground red pepper

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon rosemary

1/4 teaspoon oregano

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup shrimp stock or clam juice

1/2 cup room-temperature beer

Mix all ingredients to form a compound butter. The mixture will keep for a couple week in the refrigerator.

Sauté shrimp until pink on both sides and cooked through. Spoon butter mixture over shrimp and let it melt. Spoon shrimp and sauce over rice, mashed potatoes or pasta.

Also works with chicken, grilled steak, grilled pork chops, or sautéed fish.
