"Leave the shells on if you want. Or, shell and serve over pasta for something a bit more elegant. Either way, this is spicy, buttery, truly yummy shrimp!" — Valorie

Dijon mustard (such as Grey Poupon Country Mustard™)
1 1/2 teaspoons
crushed red pepper flakes
dry white wine
seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
Wow, this was delicious! I left out the crushed red pepper flakes and the spice level was perfect for us. I served this over pasta but there was way too much sauce, so next time I will serve it with french bread for dipping. Thanks Valorie!
If prepared as written I can't imagine giving this recipe a rating higher than three stars. The shrinp would be swimming in butter (pun intended) if you used as much as directed. Moreover, since the main ingredient in Old Bay is celery salt, I would strongly advise not using the full amount. I used a little better than half the spice mixture called for and it was terribly salty. I'm glad I sprinkled it on the shrimp rather than adding it to the sauce so that I could get a better idea of just how much seasoning was being used. This unquestionably was a great blend of herbs and spices (tho' I did omit the red pepper flakes in consideration of Hubs' sensitive innards) and the bacon, of course, made its own, wonderful and unique flavor contribution. Back off on both the butter and the Old Bay (at least START with less anyway, and see what you think) and this is a solid four star dish.
This was a suggestion for Recipe Group which is how I came across a most flavorful new way to prepare shrimp. I was only feeding two of us so I played with the quantities a bit, cutting the shrimp, bacon and butter to 1/3 and eyeballing the other ingredients. I really wasn't sure about the mustard, but I used everything and it is wonderful. You can taste each layer of flavor but nothing over takes the others. I cooked the bacon and herbs in a cast iron skillet so instead of transferring it to a baking dish, I just made sure each shrimp was well coated and put the whole thing in the preheated oven. It smelled so enticing! I served it over whole wheat farfalle, but next time I think I will serve it over crusty French bread. The sauce is too good to leave any uneaten. Thanks Valorie, this is a winner in my book.
It seems like there's way too much butter in this recipe, is it just me? I used half the butter and stayed true to everything else. Served it over thin spaghetti, this was delicious!
My Husband said it wad the best thing I have ever made! I used Jack Daniel's mustard, Marsala wine and added 1tsp smoked paprika. Delish!
Really good. Worth making again. See notes.
I submitted this recipe, which I just made again at my uncle's request. I cut the butter to 1/2 cup. (Really doesn't need 3/4, looking back...) Was almost sorry to give Uncle the entire amount, it smelled so good! And thanks to the reviews, also bought him some French bread to go with the shrimp. Time to make some for my husband and myself!
This is amazingly delicious. You might want to bear a few things in mind, though: 1. That is way too much butter. I'd suggest coating the pan w a tablespoon, but only if you use precooked bacon like I did. I doubt you even need butter if you cook the bacon in the skillet. 2. Adjust the spice based on taste--there is no need to use 2 tbs of Old Bay and red pepper flakes if you aren't a spicy food lover. And 3. If you use an oven safe skillet like I did, you don't need to dirty more dishes. I have an oven safe skillet just for recipes like this. I used 1 tbs of Old Bay, 1 tbs margarine, prawns, left out the red pepper flakes, and used Marsala wine since that is what I had open. This turned out fantastic. I loved it! I served over pasta with bread, but as others have said, the sauce is the best part, so you'll want some crusty bread with pasta or rice for this--something that will absorb the awesome flavor of the sauce. Thanks for the recipe!
