Alabama-style Shrimp Bake

Here's one for the holidays .. or any day, really.


Doesn't take long to prepare and will knock your socks off.

Note: The serving size is for 6, but get ready for a fight if you have more than 3 dinner guests. No matter what other dish you're serving. It's that good.

The recipe comes from The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Cookbook:

Alabama-style Shrimp Bake

1 cup butter or margarine, melted [The Monk uses real butter]
3/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon coarsely ground pepper
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon hot sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 pounds unpeeled large or jumbo fresh shrimp
2 lemons, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced

Garnish: fresh rosemary sprigs

Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside

Rinse shrimp with cold water; drain well.

Layer shrimp, lemon slices, and onion slices in an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish.

Pour butter mixture over shrimp.

Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, basting occasionally with pan juices.

Garnish, if desired.

Yield: 6 servings. (SEE Note above)
