Mmmmm...Spicy, Buttery Shrimp!

Well, I have another recipe to share. I found this last summer (I forget where) and tried it then, and I am making it again tonight. Obviously it is not very healthy because of all the butter, but it is oh so delicious. I promise to post some of my healthier recipes soon!

This recipe is for a large group of people. I cut it in half and it lasts us a little while.

5lb large shrimp, shelled
2lb butter
4T chopped parsley
4tsp cayenne pepper
4tsp black pepper
2T chopped rosemary leaves
2tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
5-10 cloves minced garlic
1 med. onion - minced
3 ribs celery - minced
6 oz beer - drink the rest

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Melt a stick of butter in a skillet
-Saute garlic, onion, celery, parsley, rosemary, cayenne, and pepper for 3 minutes
-Melt the rest of the butter in a medium saucepan
-Add the beer to the butter
-Add the sauteed mixture, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice
-Lay shrimp in glass baking dishes and drown with mixture; if the shrimp is not submerged, add more butter (I know! Crazy!)

-Bake 15-20 minutes or until shrimp is pink

-Serve in deep bowls with handful of shrimp and lots of butter sauce

-Don't feel guilty about all the butter because dinner was just plain awesome

Does the recipe actually tell you to drink the rest of the beer or did you add that part in? :)
