New Orleans Style
Recipe by Chef Natasha Butler,
Seasons of Louisiana Catering
New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp
8 oz. (1 cup) unsalted butter
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs. chopped garlic
4 bay leaves
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 TBS Morton’s Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds shelled, preferably domestic wild-caught and head-on
Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and add the lemon juice and peel, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaves, paprika, cayenne, salt, ground pepper, and cracked pepper. Stir and simmer for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors, being careful not to let the garlic brown. Add the shrimp and increase the heat to medium. Cook, turning with tongs, until all the shrimp are beginning to turn pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Cover the skillet and remove it from the heat. Let sit for 15 minutes so that the shrimp can absorb the flavors and finish cooking, stirring every 5 minutes or so. Squeeze Fresh Lemon on shrimp to finish. Serve hot with French bread for dipping.

With such success, Chef Tasha wanted to share some of my all-time favorite recipes in her cookbook. The cookbook, “How a Supper Jump-Started My Culinary Career” is a delicious cookbook straight from the heart of NOLA and her niche without a doubt. Chef Tasha has turned the modern day “Supper” as we call it in New Orleans, into an EMPIRE. This is only the beginning!
