  • 1 pound Jumbo Shrimp
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter
  • 8 large Garlic Minced
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1/2 cup Dry White Wine
  • 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Creole Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 Bay Leaf


  • Rinse, clean and drain shrimp. Set aside.
  • Place large sauce pan on medium high heat, Once sauce pan becomes hot, add the butter.
  • After the butter has melted, add the garlic to the pan, and cook for a few seconds until garlic has softened. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Next add the black pepper, Cayenne pepper, and creole seasoning to the pan. Mix all of the ingredients together.
  • Now add the water, white wine, Worcestershire sauce, and bay leaf to the pan. Stir ingredients. Place temperature to medium. Let mixture cook for seven to ten minutes or until sauce has thickened and almost decreased by half.
  • Then, add the butter and shrimp to the pan. Cook for about five minutes until the shrimp have become pink and the butter has melted. Stir the mixture to combine.
  • Remove the pan from the heat cooking source, cover the pan with a lid, and the shrimp mixture sit for about five minutes to allow the flavors to combine and the shrimp to absorb the flavor.


  • This recipe may be on the salty side due to the creole seasoning, and Worcestershire Sauce. Please salt to taste with caution. 
  • Keep the shells on for a more authentic recipe and to keep the shrimp moist while shrimp are being cooked. 
  • Purchase shrimp that have been deveined and are easy peel for easy prep and eating. 
  • Double the sauce recipe if you would like more sauce for dipping your french bread or for garnishing. 
  • Serve with sliced grilled French bread or garnished over a bed of grits.
