Melt the butter in a large saute pan over low heat. When melted, raise the heat, and add the remaining ingredients. (except the shrimp) Cook, stirring often, until browned to a rich mahogany color, about 12 minutes. Add the shrimp, stirring and turning to coat well with the seasoned butter.

Serve the shrimp in their shells, peeling them at the table. >Inspired by a recipe from Nathalie Dupree's "New Southern Cooking" Notes: The Kitchen Table BBS - A great recipe for those hot summer days when the stove puts off way to much heat for comfort's sake. This is quick, delicious and goes wonderfully well with a nice pasta salad and a couple of ice cold beers. Hanneman/Buster/Mcrecipe 1998-Apr-06 Recipe by: Chef Jeff
