T extra-virgin olive oil
T unsalted butter (or margarine, if you want to make this dairy-free)
T freshly minced garlic (from 5-7 cloves)
c. chicken broth
c. bottled chili sauce (preferably Heinz)
t. Cajun seafood seasoning blend (I use Paul Prudhomme's Seafood Magic)
t. Worcestershire sauce
t. dried thyme leaves
Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce to taste
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.
