I thought I would suprise my wife and cook her one of her favorite dishes, BBQ Shrimp. For those who are not familiar with BBQ Shrimp, they are not cooked on a grill.  They are cooked on the stove in butter, Olive Oil, and plenty of seasonings.  The dish calls for large head on fresh shrimp.  Unfortunately, I do not have access to fresh shrimp here in Arkansas.  I used headless tail-on shrimp, which worked well.  Tell me what you think of my take on BBQ Shrimp. Enjoy!

BBQ Shrimp
3 pounds 15-20 or larger Shrimp Head & Tail on
1 ½ pound Butter (6 sticks)
1 ½ cups Olive Oil
8 Tablespoons Garlic, Chopped
2 Tablespoons Basil Leaves (Dry)
4 teaspoons Salt
3 teaspoons Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
4 Tablespoons Ground Black Pepper
2 teaspoons Oregano (Dry)
2 teaspoons Thyme (Dry)
2 teaspoons BBQ Seasoning
1 Tablespoon Creole Seasoning
Melt butter in Olive Oil in a large pot.  Combine all other ingredients, adding shrimp last.  Cook on stovetop on Medium High Heat for 10 minutes. Serve in bowls with plenty of French Bread to sop up the sauce.
