BBQ Cajun Shrimp

This is a recipe that my brother and his wonderful wife shared with our family. It is so good, probably due to the large amount of butter that the recipe calls for.  Butter = good, am I right? Anyways, this is a recipe you will want to eat, so skip lunch and then you will be good- at least that is what I tell myself!

BBQ Cajun Shrimp
2 dozen large raw shrimp with tails still on (about 1 lb.)
Seasoning Mix:
1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1/4 lb. (1 stick) plus 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup clam juice
1/4 cup room temperature beer

In a small bowl, combine seasoning mix. Combine 1 stick of butter, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning mix in a large skillet over med-high heat. When butter is melted, add shrimp. Cook for 2 minutes shaking pan in a back and froth motion. Add remaining butter and clam juice, continue to cook and shake for 2 more minutes. Add beer and cook and shake for 1 minutes longer. Remove from heat and serve immediately with chucks of french bread.
