My brother used to call me all the time wanting quick and easy recipes that he could make when he wanted to show off in front of his friends...mostly women. Don't hear from him as much now that he is engaged to be married and that he has his own cookbook that I made just for him entitled "Recipes Even Bill Can Cook".
1 cup-that would be 2 sticks-melted butter
3/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. coarsely ground pepper
1 tsp. dried rosemary or 1 Tbsp. fresh
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper-i use at least a 1/4
1 Tbsp. hot sauce
3 cloves garlic-coarsely chopped
2 1/2 lbs. unpeeled large fresh shrimp
2 lemons-thinly sliced
1 medium sweet onion-thinly sliced

Combine first 9 ingredients in bowl; set aside. Layer shrimp, lemons, and onions in an ungreased 9-by-13 baking dish. Pour butter mixture over shrimp. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or most preferably just until the shrimp turn pink; basting occasionally. Serves 6
Be sure and don't overcook the shrimp and serve with big ol' chunks of hearty bread.
