BBQ Royal Reds


3 tablespoons spice seasoning, more or less to taste

(Joe Patti’s has some great pre-mixed Spice Seasoning)

1 cup flour

3 pounds Royal Red Shrimp, peeled and de-veined, tail on

4 ounces unsalted butter

2 ounces olive oil

1/4 cup white vinegar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

3 tablespoons hot sauce

1 pinch fresh thyme

1 pinch fresh oregano

2 tablespoons chopped green onion

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 bay leaves

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon paprika

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


Mix spice seasoning and flour together. Lightly coat shrimp with seasoned flour. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add butter and olive oil. Once hot, add shrimp (you may have to cook in batches or use two skillets, if you can). Just after adding the shrimp, add vinegar, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, mustard, hot sauce, thyme, oregano, green onion, parsley, garlic, bay leaves, red pepper flakes, paprika and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until the sauce reduces and the shrimp is cooked, about 4 to 5 minutes. Serve as an appetizer with French bread.
