Directions:
1. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Creole seasoning. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Cook half of shrimp, without moving them, until spotty brown on 1 side, about 1 minute; transfer to large plate. Repeat with remaining shrimp and oil.

2. Melt 1 Tbsp butter in now-empty skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, flour, tomato paste, rosemary, thyme, and oregano and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in clam juice, beer, and Worcestershire, scraping up any browned bits, adn bring to boil. Return shrimp and any accumulated juices to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Off heat, stir in remaining butter until incorporated. Serve immediately with lemon and French bread.

New Orleans-style barbecue shrimp aren't actually barbecued, but cooked either in the oven or stovetop. My Mom's barbecue shrimp were one of my favorite meals as a kid. This takes me back to the Gulf Coast.
