List of Ingredients
1 pounds Butter
½ cup Lemon juice
2 teaspoon Fresh basil; chopped
2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
2 teaspoon Fresh oregano; chopped
5 Garlic cloves; minced
1 Bay leaf; crumbled
½ cup Black pepper; finely ground
4 pounds Large raw shrimp in shells
The shrimp should be of a size to number 30-35 per pound. Melt the butter in a large deep-sided frying pan or an iron skillet over low heat.
When melted, raise the heat, and add the remaining ingredients except the shrimp.
Cook, stirring often, until browned to a rich mahogany color, about 10 minutes.
Add the shrimp, stirring and turning to coat well with the seasoned butter.
Cook until the shrimp have turned a rich deep pink, about 10 minutes.
Serve the shrimp in their shells, peeling them at the table
