NOTE: I posted this recipe 2 years ago, but thought that it's a good dish to serve when you want to sit around and talk with family and friends. Just keep plenty of napkins on hand.
I'm not sure why this is called Barbequed Shrimp.....you don't barbeque it and you don't put barbeque sauce on it. However, it is a really good, quick and delicious recipe. It is also quite messy, because you serve on the table in the sauce, and the shrimp then needs to be peeled.
2 Sticks Butter, melted
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Dash of Oregano
Hot Sauce, to taste
1 tbsp Chili Sauce
1 cup White Wine
1 Sliced Lemon
Salt and Pepper
1 lb Shrimp, in shells, headless, medium size
Mix all ingredients in large, oven-safe pan (9x13). Marinate shrimp for 1-2 hours in sauce, or overnight, though the butter will solidify again.
Bake 300° oven, basting often about 30 minutes. Serve with French bread for dipping into sauce, cole slaw and rice, if you want.
