  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 lbs jumbo shrimp, deveined
  • 1 lb smoked sausage, sliced
  • 3 lemons
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup Asian chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon creole seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon oregano, crushed
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Devein shrimp, do not peel.
  3. Slice sausage.
  4. Place shrimp and sausage in a greased casserole dish. Top with melted butter.
  5. Juice 1 1/2 lemon and place into a blender, add remaining ingredients and spices, blend well.
  6. Pour hot sauce liquid over shrimp, mix well and bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, garnish with sliced lemon wedges and serve with crusty bread.


You can add about 6 baby red potatoes and 6 corn on the cob cut in 1/2 to the recipe.
Slice potatoes in half and boil for about 10 minutes before adding to the shrimp mixture. Add corn the last 5 minutes of boiling time to the potatoes. Add both ingredients to the shrimp mixture. I would suggest doubling the sauce recipe if you add corn and potatoes.
