"This was my stepfather's crowd-pleasing recipe. It's simple to make, and the longer the shrimp sit, the better! You can prepare the shrimp a day ahead, refrigerate, and reheat before serving. The leftover liquid can be frozen and used to make great gumbo."

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until transparent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the salt and shrimp.

Serve while still warm, or refrigerate and reheat before serving.

Great, different taste than I'm used to in shrimp. Next time I would cut way down on the butter (was just a bit too rich for me as written), and add some garlic. I found that it was absolutely...
