New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp


By Jennifer Segal
Servings: 4
Total Time: 20 Minutes

1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 pounds extra large or jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
3 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced

Mix the paprika, ancho chili powder, cumin, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Add the shrimp to the spices and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
Melt the butter over medium heat in a 12-inch skillet. Add the garlic and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for one minute. Do not brown. Add the shrimp and continue cooking over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the shrimp are almost cooked but still opaque in spots, 3-4 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and water and cook until shrimp are done, 1-2 minutes more. Scatter scallions over top and serve.
