Shrimp is one of my favorite seafoods. And luckily there are so many delicious and exiting preparation methods. It tastes amazing pretty much any way you make it. I love the convenience of broiling the shrimp. It is great when the weather doesn’t cooperate or you just do not feel like dealing with firing up the grill.
This recipe for broiled shrimp is fantastic and a breeze to make. Shrimp is coated in fragrant herbs and spices, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce and first roasted with butter in the oven then finished under a hot broiler to create the beautiful charred shrimp. The result is succulent shrimp that is cooked to perfection, mighty flavorful in a scrumptious buttery sauce. Your hands will automatically grab a slice of fresh bread to pick up every bits and drops of the sauce. It is simply irresistible.
The hardest part in the whole process is probably to peel the shells off the raw shrimp. It takes less then 20 minutes to create this elegant, seafood restaurant worthy shrimp dish that everyone will love. Cajun spice give it a little bit of a spicy bite, nothing overwhelming just enough to enliven the mild taste of the shrimp. While lemon juice really brightens up the richness of the buttery flavors.
This simple yet mouthwatering broiled shrimp is very versatile. Serve it as an appetizer with bread for sauce dipping.
Or as a main course over your favorite pasta or southern grits. It looks so appetizing, beautiful golden color on the plate. You can use any size shrimp but medium to large is ideal. And make sure you do not overcook the shrimp for it to become rubbery and unpalatable and flush your money down the drain. It only takes a few minutes for the shrimp to cook through.
