Another Weekend Recipe

I had SO. much. fun. playing "Guess What I'm Cooking" on Twitter this past Saturday night!! You girlies are WAAAAAY too funny!! So without further adieu, here is the *spectacular* recipe that I made this weekend! And don't get all "choked up" over the "serve with green salad and French bread" part because I can tell ya that part of the recipe didn't happen!

Barbecue Shrimp

1/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons pepper
5 pounds unpeeled shrimp
Hot cooked rice

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt butter with olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper in a baking dish in the oven. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Bake, covered with foil, for 45 to 60 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink, stirring every 15 minutes. Serve over hot cooked rice with a green salad and French bread. Serves 10.

Now, before you think we ate $45 of shrimp Saturday night, I must tell you that I split the recipe in half and it worked out perfectly.
