4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil

1 Tablespoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper, Or To Taste

¼ Teaspoon Smoked Paprika

¼ Teaspoon Seafood Seasoning

1 Tablespoon Butter

2 Cups Chicken Stock

1 Lemon, Juiced

2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce, Or More To Taste

4 Dashes Hot Sauce, Or To Taste

4 Tablespoons Cold Butter, Cut Into Chunks

5 Cloves Garlic, Minced

Step 1 Peel shrimp and place into a mixing bowl; set shrimp shells aside in a saucepan.

Step 2 Drizzle vegetable oil over shrimp and season with black pepper, smoked paprika, and seafood seasoning. Mix shrimp to coat with spices and cover bowl with plastic wrap; refrigerate shrimp to absorb flavors, at least 1 hour.

Step 3 Place reserved shrimp shells in saucepan over medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon butter; cook and stir until shells are pink and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in chicken stock, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low; simmer until shrimp shells have given off their flavor, 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 4 Strain shrimp stock through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl and add lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Stir to combine.

Step 5 Place a large skillet over high heat until pan is very hot; sear shrimp in the very hot, dry pan until shrimp are browned, about 1 minute per side.

Step 6 Stir 3 tablespoons cold butter, garlic, and minced cilantro into shrimp; cook and stir until shrimp are opaque in the middle and garlic is fragrant, 1 minute. Pour in shrimp stock.

Step 7 Transfer shrimp from skillet to a bowl, using a slotted spoon; reserve sauce in skillet. Bring sauce to a boil and cook until reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste. Return shrimp to pan, reduce heat to low, and warm through, about 1 minute. Serve shrimp drizzled with pan sauce over rice; , Garlic Toast and salad with lemon vinaigrette. Garnish with Cilantro.
