 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Pound         Butter
    2      Teaspoons     Fresh ground black pepper
      1/4  Cup           Peanut oil
    2      Each          Bay leaves -- crumbled
    3      Each          Cloves garlic -- chopped
    1      Tablespoon    Paprika
    2      Tablespoons   Rosemary
    2      Teaspoons     Lemon juice
    1      Teaspoon      Chopped basil
    2      Pounds        Raw shrimp in their shells
    1      Teaspoon      Chopped thyme
                         Salt
    1      Teaspoon      Chopped oregano
    2      Tablespoons   Cayenne pepper
 
 Shrimp should be of a size to number 30-35 per pound. Melt the Butter and
 Oil in a flameproof baking dish. Add the Garlic, herbs, Peppers, bay leaves,
 Paprika, and Lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer
 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove the dish from the heat and let the
 flavors marry at least 30 minutes. This hot Butter Sauce can be made a day
 in advance and refrigerated. Preheat the oven to 450F.
 Reheat the Sauce, add the shrimp, and cook over medium heat until the shrimp
 just turn pink, then bake in the oven about 30 minutes more. Taste for
 seasoning, adding Salt if necessary.
