Marianne Kinnison


20 large (16/20) shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 ounce canola oil
1 tablespoon plus 5 teaspoons green onions, chopped
2 ounces dry white wine
1 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
4 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Tabasco
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
8 ounces (2 sticks) salted butter

Place a large cast iron skillet on a burner and heat over high heat

Add oil and cook shrimp until they are just done. It’s best to prepare shrimp in batches if you do not have large skillet

Remove shrimp and set aside on a large platter

Add green onions to the oil in the skillet and cook for 1 minute

Add white wine and let simmer until it is reduced by half

When the wine is reduced by half, add chopped garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, cayenne pepper and paprika. Shake the pan well and cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low

Cut butter into small chunks with the knife and slowly add into pan, shaking fast to melt butter.
Continue to add butter and shake until all butter is melted

Add shrimp back to pan and toss well to coat shrimp with butter and seasonings and to heat the shrimp

Place shrimp on four plates and enjoy
