3 lb. lg. shrimp (tails on)
3 sticks butter or margarine
1 onion chopped fine
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. garlic salt
1 lime, squeezed
1 t. parsley
1/2 lemon, squeezed
1 t. Tabasco sauce
salt to taste
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 t. Greek seasonings
1/4 c. wine vinegar
1/2-3/4 c. white wine
1 t. oregano

Saute onions and garlic in butter until soft. Add other ingredients. Cook about 5 minutes or until well blended. Remove from heat and cool. Add peeled shrimp to mixture and let marinated for several hours. Remove shrimp to large pan and broil on each side until done, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Baste with marinade at least once while broiling. Remove to individual serving dishes and cover with heated marinade. This dish is best served with seasoned rice. Use marinade to serve on rice. Also you can top shrimp with Parmesan cheese and/or seasoned bread crumbs. Bon Appetit!
