  • 2 pounds shrimp peeled, deveined and tail off
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons hot chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Liquid Smoke Hickory flavored
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce I use Frank's Red Hot
  • 5 cloves fresh garlic


  • Thaw the shrimp and remove and discard the tails. Set the shrimp aside.
  • Add all remaining ingredients (minus the shrimp!) to a medium saucepan and simmer over medium-low to low heat for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, set aside and let cool.
  • Place the shrimp in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over the shrimp. Gently stir to thoroughly coat all the shrimp.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight to allow shrimp to marinate.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake shrimp for 15-20 minutes or until done and no longer pink.
  • Serve immediately. Best served with a crusty French bread.


I buy the 2# package of frozen, raw, peeled, deveined, tail-on shrimp from Costco.
