Johnny Earles’ “Barbecued” Shrimp

Makes 4 servings
Time: 10 minutes

As everyone must know by now, the term “barbe­cue” legitimately refers only to foods that are slow ­cooked by wood heat. The Worcestershire sauce in this dish, however, lends the shrimp a smoky fla­vor and saves you from firing up the grill. Serve this as an appetizer or main course with bread or rice, or pasta. Please don’t substitute for the butter here; the dish will just not be the same.

Ingredients:

1 pound large fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
Salt to taste
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon water

Instructions:

Sprinkle the shrimp with salt. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the remaining ingredients and cook, shaking the pan continuously, until the shrimp are cooked, 3 to 5 minutes (they’ll all be bright pink).  Serve immediately!
