HOT AND SPICY SHRIMP

Category:    Main dishes, Fish
Yield:4 servings
 
      1 lb Butter                              2 tb Ground cayenne pepper
    1/4 c  Peanut oil                          2 ts Fresh ground black pepper
      3 ea Cloves garlic, chopped              2 ea Bay leaves, crumbled
      2 tb Rosemary                            1 tb Paprika
      1 ts Chopped basil                       2 ts Lemon juice
      1 ts Chopped thyme                       2 lb Raw shrimp in their shells
      1 ts Chopped oregano                     1 x  Salt
      1 ea Small hot pepper chopped OR    
 
  Shrimp should be of a size to number 30-35 per pound. Melt the butter and
  oil in a flameproof baking dish.  Add the garlic, herbs, peppers, bay
  leaves, paprika, and lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down
  and simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove the dish from the heat
  and let the flavors marry at least 30 minutes. This hot butter sauce can be
  made a day in advance and refrigerated.
     Preheat the oven to 450F.  Reheat the sauce, add the shrimp, and cook
  over medium heat until the shrimp just turn pink, then bake in the oven
  about 30 minutes more.  Taste for seasoning, adding salt if necessary.
  Nathalie Dupree writes of this recipe in her book "New Southern Cooking,"
  "Shrimp taste better when cooked in their shells because the fat under the
  shells preserves their flavor and tenderness.  When the shells are crisp it
  is a pleasure to eat the shrimp with their shells on.  This rich butter
  sauce cries out to be sopped up with crusty bread once the shrimp are
  gone."
