New Orleans-Style Shrimp

Barbecue shrimp (no relation to slow-smoked Southern barbecue), cooked in loads of butter, Worcestershire, lemon, and black pepper, is the specialty of the house at New Orleans institution Pascal's Manale. Our version cuts back on the unhealthful saturated fat, but brings huge flavor nonetheless. Serve with plenty of French bread to soak up the buttery, spicy sauce.
