"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
2 lbs. large fresh shrimp
8 Tbsp. (1 stick) butter
cup olive oil
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
cup shallots or scallions, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt

Directions:
Directions:
Shell the shrimp and clean them. Rinse the shrimp quickly under cold running water and pat them dry thoroughly with paper towels.
Preheat broiler to its highest temperature.
Melt the butter (be careful not to let it brown), and then stir in olive oil, lemon juice, shallots, garlic, salt, and pepper.
In a shallow baking dish (just large enough to hold shrimp in one layer), place the shrimp and pour the butter mixture over the shrimp. Turn the shrimp in the butter and oil until they glisten on all sides.
Broil the shrimp 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes, then turn the shrimp over and broil them for 5 to 10 minutes longer, or until they are lightly browned and firm to the touch. Be careful not to overcook them.
With tongs, transfer the shrimp to a heated serving platter, pour the sauce from the pan over them, and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
Garnish with lemon quarters, and serve.
