This is the only way I prepare shrimp anymore. I don't usually make 5 lbs at a time, though! Try it once and you will see why!
5 pounds jumbo raw shrimp unpeeled
salt and freshly ground pepper
6 sticks butter
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
10 cloves garlic minced
5 bay leaves
2 teaspoons salt
Wash the shrimp well. Put in a large baking dish. Salt and pepper the shrimp. In a saucepan melt the butter, and then add the Worcestershire, Italian seasoning, lemon juice, Cajun seasoning, garlic, bay leaves, and salt. Pour mixture over all shrimp to cover.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the shrimp are not all cooked, stir well and check every 10 minutes until they are all done.
They should be a dark shade of pink when done. Serve with plenty of crusty bread for mopping up the wonderful sauce!
