Barbecue Shrimp

My friend Melanie made this for dinner one night, and my husband and I have been hooked on this shrimp recipe ever since.  It is a super simple way to prepare shrimp, and the flavor is amazing. Soaking up the sauce with a piece of slightly crisp baguette is so good.  The name of this recipe is Barbecue Shrimp, but it should be New Orleans Style-Creole Shrimp.  This dish is spicy, savory, and finger lickin' good.  It is a great dish to make for a party, and can easily be doubled or tripled. I have also served this dish with Japanese white rice.  


  • 1/2 c fat-free Caesar dressing
  • 1/3 c Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • bay leaves
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pounds large shrimp
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine 
  • 10 (1-ounce) slices French bread baguette
  • 10 lemon wedges


  1. Combine the first 11 ingredients in a large nonstick skillet; bring to a boil. Add shrimp, and cook 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine, and cook 1 minute or until shrimp are done. Serve with bread and lemon wedges.
  2. *You can also serve the shrimp with rice instead of bread.
