Bar-B-Q Skillet Shrimp

Beef and pork may be more common barbecue fare, but this shrimp recipe mixes Original sauce, lime juice, paprika and garlic in a dish that’s both easy and delicious.


  • 1 pound large shrimp, with shells
  • 8 tablespoon salted butter (1 stick)
  • 4 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Stubb's® Original Barbecue Sauce
  • 3 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 scallion (green and white parts), chopped
  • Warm crusty bread


  • 1 Prepare the shrimp by pulling off the legs and, if desired, devein, but leave the shells on.
  • 2 In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until it just starts to soften, about 1 minute. Stir in the water, Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Sauce, lime juice, and paprika. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook at a low boil (with bubbles gently but constantly breaking the entire surface), stirring occasionally, until the liquid thickens and no longer seems “watery,” about 7 minutes.
  • 3 Add the shrimp and raise the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring often, until the shrimp shells are pink and the shrimps curl slightly, about 5 minutes. (Test one to see if the meat is firm but not dry, and slips out of the shells easily.)
  • 4 Sprinkle the scallion over the shrimp and serve hot, directly from the skillet, with crusty bread for mopping up the sauce
