  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange the shrimp in a single layer in as many baking dishes as you need. Set aside.
  2. Melt 1/2 cup of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, celery, parsley, Creole seasoning and rosemary. Cook and stir for a few minutes, until onion is tender. Add the rest of the butter and cook until melted over low heat. Stir in the pepper, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. Pour this mixture over the shrimp so that the shrimp are completely submerged.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until shrimp are pink, 15 to 20 minutes.

This was awesome!!! I made a few modifications as some other reviewers suggest: added red pepper, a little more creole seasoning, and halfed the butter content. It was plenty rich and there is no need for that extra butter. Will make again!

Sorry, but I found this to be sooooo salty we could not eat it. My husband said IF we try it again to only use a teaspoon or two of Worchestershire. This recipe was sooooooo salty it was a waste of $36.00 in seafood,

Wow! These were delicious. The only thing I would change next time is to add a little more creole seasoning. I used the recipe for 4 servings with 1 1/2 lb shrimp for extra sauce to dip hush puppies in. I will definately make this again.

I only gave it 4 stars because it was soooo rich. Yummy, yummy but I would add more cajun seasoning too. I made half the recipe for Valentines day and we couldn't finish our servings it was so rich. I will serve it again, but as a side dish to a meal or appetizer.

These were yummy. I took it to a Superbowl party and they were a hit. Just make sure you use ready to eat shrimp. I grabbed peel and eat by accident and the flavor did not go through to the shrimp as well. Thanks!

This was so good! I made this last week while in the US for my daughter's best friend and she just loved it. I sauteed all veggies/spices/butter in my cast iron skillet then threw in the shrimp and baked. I served with homemade mashed pototoes and french bread to sop up the sauce. Very easy and quick and yummy.

This was great. I did follow other reviews and didn't use as much butter, and used more creole seasoning. My boyfriend loved it. I paired it with garlic mashed potatoes, and steamed asparagus. Yummy.
