This is one of my favorite recipes. I've made it several times since acquiring the recipe from Kevin's mom last summer, and each time I've promised myself I would photograph it and blog about it. And each time...I've stared at it in defeat.

Because in all honesty, it's a difficult dish to capture in a photo.

See? It just looks...meh. But let me describe the flavors for you, so that you can get an idea of why this is so awesomesauce.

You take quite a bit of melted butter, add rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic, throw in some tabasco, worcester, and lemon juice, toss it all into a baking dish with lemon slices and bake.

What you end up with is the most incredible spicy, buttery, messy dish ever.

You serve it with a giant hunk of bread to soak up the sauce, a bowl for the shrimp tails, and lots of paper towels. Because this isn't a meal to use utensils with. It's a yummy one-dish meal, and I looooooove dunking my bread into the sauce.

This is also one of Kevin's parents' favorite dishes. Apparently, they used to order a pizza for their 4 boys, and then the two of them would share the shrimp in the kitchen while the kids watched tv. shrimp, spicy, worcester, garlic, sauce, dipping, bread, lemon, tabasco, pepper, salt, delicious, frozen, easy, baked, cajun, one pot, peeled, deveined, slices, juice

Here's the original recipe, stained with worcester from years of use. I pretty much do everything the same, but I dont even add the margarine, and I only make 1-2 pounds of shrimp. Because A. Shrimp is expensive now. And B. I'm usually only feeding 2 people.

Even these less-than-exciting photos are making me crave it again. I do have another half bag of shrimp in my freezer...

Enjoy!
