These shrimp swim in a spicy butter sauce laden with pepper and Worcestershire sauce. It's a great dish for entertaining a crowd in the summer. Serve with corn on the cob and roasted potatoes.

1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp. salt
2 to 3 tsp. hot sauce
French bread

Put shrimp in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Add celery, garlic, and onion. Squeeze lemons over shrimp; add squeezed lemon halves to pan. Melt butter in small pan.
