Ingredients:Ralph and Kacoo's B-B-Q Shrimp

Source: wbrz.com - Ralph and Kacoo's, New Orleans, Louisiana

2 pounds large fresh shrimp in the shell (heads removed)
1 C butter
1/2 C olive oil
6 T minced garlic
1 T sweet basil (dried will do, but fresh is best)
4 t salt
1 t lemon juice
2 T Worcestershire sauce
5 T fresh! finely ground black pepper
Preparation:Melt butter in olive oil. Add all other ingredients except shrimp. Let sauce stand for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours.

When ready to cook, add shrimp to skillet and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until they are pink all over, stirring often.

Serve with crusty bread for dipping.
Notes:Sarawak pepper is nicely spicy but super strong. If using fresh ground Sarawak (which I recommend that you do), reduce pepper to 3T, adjust to your taste.
Upping the lemon juice to a whole Meyer lemon and cutting the worchestershire sauce to 1T makes it lemony and yummy.
