BBQ Shrimp and French Bread

This title is very deceptive.  The shrimp does not involve a grill, BBQ or anything else that makes you think BBQ.  However, it is delish!!  I've been seeing versions on pinterest and have been dying to try it.  However, it seemed like something you needed to save for a special occasion.  It's definitely rich and buttery!  It also seems like you needs side dishes - you don't.  We served with a salad and that was plenty.  This makes 2 entrée servings or 4 appetizer servings. 

1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 c. worchestershire sauce
2 T. fresh lemon juice
2 t. fresh ground pepper
2 t. Cajun seasoning
1 t. minced garlic
2 sticks of butter, diced
1/2 bunch of green onions, thinly sliced
1 loaf of crusty French bread

In large skillet, mix together worchestershire, lemon juice, pepper, Cajun seasoning and garlic.  Heat over medium heat and add shrimp.  Cook shrimp 1 minute per side until pink.  Add in butter, stirring to combine.  Remove from heat immediately once butter is melted so the shrimp will stop cooking.  Divide shrimp and sauce and sprinkle with diced green onions.  Serve with slices of bread.  You will definitely want to soak up the sauce with the bread!
