This is the original recipe, which calls for shrimp with heads on. I can't get them that way, and have always used tails only. I figure the heads are about 1/2 the total weight, so 2 lbs shrimp tails for this amount of sauce.

I usually serve it with Basmati rice, and a salad. Bread of some sort is wonderful for dipping in the sauce, but you need to watch the amount and type of bread used. Once you eat a little, you may not be able to stop, the sauce is so good.


Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2001

4 pounds raw shrimp, heads and shells on, well rinsed and drained
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
10 cloves garlic, minced
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Essence, recipe follows
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons fresh oregano
1 teaspoon crushed whole peppercorns
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 lemons, cut in half and their juice
1 large loaf crusty French bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse the shrimp under cold running water and let drain. Spread in 1 layer in a large roasting pan or baking dish. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the remaining ingredients, except the shrimp and bread, and stir to mix well. Remove from the heat and pour over the shrimp. Bake in the oven until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep the shrimp from drying out. Remove from the oven and pour into a large serving bowl, or individual bowls to be peeled and eaten at tableside, with hot French bread for dunking in the sauce.

This recipe is a staple in our house! Dave, you have great taste!! BTW, SB makes a really good ww french bread. We can get here in Louisiana at Albertson's, but I also saw it on the SB website. I know, I know, it's not quite the same thing, but it's legal!!
