Southern “Barbecue” Shrimp

1 pound uncooked large shrimp, deveined but with tails and shells intact
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning or other seafood seasoning
Lemon wedges
Crusty baguette slices

The original recipe calls for cooking in an oven broiler, I cook these shrimp on the grill. Whichever method these recipe create great tasting shrimp. If cooking in an oven cover rimmed baking sheet with foil and spread shrimp on sheet.

Mix melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, and Old Bay seasoning in medium bowl for sauce. Pour half of sauce over shrimp and stir to coat. Let the shrimp marinate for at least 30 minutes. Broil until shrimp are just opaque in center, about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to platter; serve with lemon wedges, baguette slices, and remaining sauce. Complete the meal with Grilled Corn and Shallots and Grilled Fingerling Potatoes.
