Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds jumbo or colossal fresh shrimp, heads on
  • 7 cups cold water
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 11/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup Slap Ya Mama Cajun Hot Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup dark or amber beer
  • 2 loaves French bread, for serving

Directions:

  1. Peel shrimp and devein, leaving tails on and reserving the heads and shells. Refrigerate shrimp.
  2. In a small Dutch oven, add shrimp heads and shells, and cover with 7 cups cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Skim any froth as it rises to the surface.
  4. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, and set aside. Reserve 1 cup shrimp stock. Remaining stock can be refrigerated up to 1 week or frozen up to 3 months.
  5. In a large skillet, melt 5 tablespoons butter over high heat. Add rosemary, pepper, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning, shallot, and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Add reserved stock, Worcestershire, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Hot Sauce, and lemon juice. Add shrimp, and cook just until pink and firm.
  7. Add beer, and cook 2 to 3 minutes more. Decrease heat to low, and add remaining 7 tablespoons butter.
  8. Gently stir as the butter melts into the sauce and the sauce is emulsified.
  9. Serve immediately with French bread.

Makes about 4 Servings
