Friend Fridays: Cara C. Putman's Cajun Shrimp

Cajun Shrimp

A spicy, hands-on dish that is a lot of fun to eat and great when served with spinach salad and bread. The sauce is perfect for dipping bread in.

2 sticks melted butter
2 sticks melted margarine
8 oz. Worchester sauce
Bulb of garlic (or 2 T. minced garlic)
4 lemons (2 juiced and 2 sliced thinly)
4 T black pepper
1 t. Rosemary
2 t. salt
2-3 lbs uncooked shrimp in the shell (1 1/2 lbs is good for 4 people)

Mix all ingredients except shrimp and sliced lemon. Pour 1/2 of mixture in bottom of pan; top with shrimp. Then pour the rest of the sauce over the shrimp. Top with sliced lemon. Cook 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees or until the shrimp turn from grey to a pinky salmon color.
