  • 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

Directions

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.
