  1. Take the butter, cut into thirds, and melt in a large saucepan over medium heat until melted. Next, add the green onions, Worcestershire sauce, crab boil, cayenne, red pepper flakes, salt, black pepper, thyme, garlic, bay leaves and 5 to 6 shakes hot sauce. Cut the lemon in half, squeeze the juice in and then drop the lemon halves into the pan. Bring to a boil, but there should be no smoke. Add the shrimp in flat rows on top. Cook until pink, about 2 minutes per side. Pour everything onto a plate and serve.

Cook’s Note

Top of the shrimp head should NOT have a red spot, the shrimp should be completely grey, and the fresher the better. Good to let everything soak for a bit, but don't overcook because the shrimp will have a rubber-like texture. You want to cook it with the head and shell on.
