House of Blues Voodoo Shrimp
with Shrimp Reduction Sauce

Recipe Ingredients


  1. In a large saucepot, combine beer, bay leaves, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper, basil, oregano, shrimp and chicken bases, sugar and cream. Let the mixture simmer until the mixture coats the back of spoon.
  2. Season shrimp to taste and sauté in oil. Ladle 4 ounces of the simmered sauce into the pan. When the mixture begins to thicken, add 1 ounce of butter to the pan. Add tomatoes.
  3. To serve, cut a wedge of corn bread in half. Toast halves if desired. Place bottom half in a shallow serving bowl and top with shrimp and some of the sauce. Add chives. Place remaining wedge of corn bread on top and garnish with rosemary.

Yield: 1 generous serving
