Marinated BBQ-style Shrimp

I've been a shrimp lover for 36 years, and think this is the best recipe I've ever made. We had it twice in 4 days.

Bought some fresh LARGE (10-15 count) Royal Reds with heads on at Joe Patti's in Pensacola.


Marinated for a several hours with equal parts melted butter, EVOO and worcestershire. Added a few TBS of mined garlic and a couple TBS of Bad Byron's Jubilee seafood rub. Depending on how hot you want it, you could add some hot sauce or cayenne. For the last 2 hours of marinating, added the juice of one lemon, a few more glugs of worcester and a sprinkling of some additional rub.


Baked at 375 for 15 minutes, flipping the shrimp halfway through. Used the same pyrex dish we marinated in.



Crash potatos boiled in heavily salted water and a couple TBS of seafood rub. Then rubbed with EVOO, topped with minced garlic, Tony's cajun seasoning and a small slice of Boar's Head horseradish cheddar. Baked the taters for about 20 minutes, same oven as the shrimp.


Here it is plated.


No leftovers either night. This will have to be awesome on the egg. Can't wait to get home and try it out.

Maybe the best part is dunking hot french bread into the sauce.

    Sounds great.

    You should add this to the recipes section. I am always on the prowl for new shrimp recipes.

    Welcome to Pensacola! What did you think of Joe Patti's? We'll head over there and pick up a couple of pounds of shrimp and just have them steam them there. They have two options, steamed regular or spicy and we always get the spicy. Then we just take those home and peel 'em and eat 'em.

    If you are still in town, I recommend trying the Fishhouse ( I love that place.

    Guess I could add a recipe. Never done that before.

    Thanks, they were awesome.

    We LOVE Joe Patti's! We hit it on the way to Navarre, and typically made another trip to Pensacola during the week to pick up a few more things. We'll try some of the steamed shrimp later this week. That sure sounds like a good healthy snack.

    We have eaten at the Fishhouse several times and have never been disappointed. What the story with the new place on the water between Joe Patti's and the Fishhouse? I think it was called the Crab Trap.

    Thanks, Darian. If I had any more shrimp, I'd be eating them now, too.

    I haven't eaten at the one here in Pensacola, but I have eaten at the Crab Trap in Orange Beach, AL. It wasn't bad.

    Today was one of those chilly rainy days in NC and wondering what would be good to cook inside. Decided to try your recipe and it was great. Thanks for sharing.
