  • 1 lb raw shrimp 31-35 count; peeled, deveined with tails left intact, and pat-dried.
  • 6 Tbsp butter room temperature
  • 4 cloves garlic pressed
  • 4 fillets anchovy
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp minced red chili pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley


  • In a small bowl, combine the butter, anchovy fillets, garlic, Dijon mustard, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and minced red chili pepper. Using a small fork, mash the ingredients together.
  • Place the shrimp in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Curl the shrimp. Scoop the compound butter mixture with a 1/4 teaspoon and place one (heaping) scoop on each curled shrimp.

  • Pre-heat the broiler on high for 5 minutes.
  • Broil the shrimp on the second-highest rack, without flipping, about 6 inches from the broiler heating element, for about 5 minutes, until they turn pink and cooked through. After 2 minutes, once the butter has melted, baste the shrimp with the melted butter.
  • Transfer to a serving platter, sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
