  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Heat butter and oil in a large saucepan. Add Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, lemons, hot sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic, paprika and salt to the saucepan. Mix well and simmer 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Divide shrimp between two Dutch ovens. Pour 1/2 of the sauce into one Dutch oven and 1/2 of the sauce into the other. Heat the sauce in both Dutch ovens to a simmer and cook the shrimp for 6 to 8 minutes; until the shrimp begin to turn pink.
  4. When the shrimp have begun to turn pink pour the shrimp and sauce from both Dutch ovens into a large baking pan (or two pans depending on how much sauce you have). Bake the shrimp for 10 minutes, stirring once.

I used frozen shrimp and cut it way down to feed just my family. Everybody who has tried it has really liked it. Definitely goes great with Italian bread!

This dish was so easy and so good. I made 1 serving using medium shrimp. I cooked the sauce, poured it over the shrimp and put them directly into the oven for about 9 minutes. They were perfect ...

What a forgiving recipe! Didn't measure much or use oven & still came out tasty! I let the shrimp cook on the stovetop in the sauce - why bother w/ oven and another dish? Also, served w/ corn an...
