Ingredients

Scale

For the Shrimp

  • 6 tablespoons butter butter
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon Isaac Toups Louisiana Lightning Cajun Blend
  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp shell on
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced

For the Sauce

To Serve

  • salt and coarsely ground pepper if desired
  • 1 loaf crusty bread toasted


Instructions

Cook the Shrimp

  1. Preheat your cast iron over a 2-zone cooking fire or grill.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan and coat.
  3. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, until translucent and slightly browned.
  4. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds.
  5. Add the Cajun seasoning and stir to coat.
  6. Add the Worcestershire and hot sauce and stir to combine.
  7. Add the lemon juice.
  8. Add the shrimp, tossing in the onion mixture, and cooking, flipping as needed until shells become pink and shrimp is cooked through on both sides, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. Remove shrimp, wrap in foil, and set aside.

Make Sauce

  1. Working with the same cast-iron skillet, deglaze with white wine, scraping up any browned bits.
  2. Stir in chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Allow the liquid to reduce until thickened and coats the back of spoon, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, whisk in butter, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  4. Return the shrimp to coat
  5. Toss shrimp back in skillet, add the Over Easy blend, and toss to coat the shrimp in the sauce.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Serve

  1. Using caution, serve directly from the skillet hot, or transfer to a warm bowl, with grilled bread and lemon wedges, if desired.
