  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter or less, if preferred (I only used ½ cup)
  1. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large skillet over high heat; add shrimp and cook until they are just done. It’s best to prepare shrimp in batches if you do not have large skillet. Remove shrimp and set aside.
  2. Add 1 tbsp to now empty skillet; add green onions and cook for 1 minute. Add white wine and let simmer until it is reduced by half.
  3. When the wine is reduced by half, add chopped garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco. cayenne pepper and paprika. Shake the pan well and cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low.
  4. Cut butter into small chunks with the knife and slowly add into pan, shaking fast to melt butter.
  5. Continue to add butter and shake until all butter is melted. Add shrimp back to pan and toss well to coat shrimp with butter and seasonings.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
