Ingredients

  • 2 pounds jumbo shrimp (16/20 count), peeled and deveined, tails removed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons)

  • Chef notes

    These savory BBQ glazed shrimp are fantastic served over grits. The quick and easy recipe from Damaris Phillips is great for brunch.

    Preparation

    Combine the shrimp with the chili powder, cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper in a medium bowl. Toss until the shrimp is thoroughly seasoned. Set aside.

    Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, honey, Worcestershire and 2 tablespoons water. Stir and sauté to combine, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and stir to coat in the pan sauce. Sauté until the shrimp are opaque and just starting to curl, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and garnish with the green onions. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
