This zippy BBQ shrimp dish is a snap to prepare. It is flavorful, quick, and kids love it. A great taste of Cajun Country in under 30 minutes!
|1||T extra-virgin olive oil|
|1||T unsalted butter (or margarine, if you want to make this dairy-free)|
|1||T freshly minced garlic (from 5-7 cloves)|
|1||c. chicken broth|
|½||c. bottled chili sauce (preferably Heinz)|
|1||t. Cajun seafood seasoning blend (I use Paul Prudhomme's Seafood Magic)|
|1||t. Worcestershire sauce|
|1||t. dried thyme leaves|
|Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce to taste|
|1||lb. raw lg. shrimp, peeled|
1. Spray a large, heavy skillet with non-stick spray. Heat over medium heat and add the EVOO and the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic and cook 30 seconds-- don't let the garlic brown. 2. Add the chicken broth and raise the heat to high. Add the chili sauce, cajun seasoning, Worcestershire, thyme, and hot sauce (if using). Boil for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly thickened and the flavors have blended. 3. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring gently, until the shrimp are pink and just cooked-through, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve the shrimp and sauce over a bed of rice.
