Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Pull corn out of freezer when starting to pull ingredients together to begin thawing.
  3. Combine oil, Worcestershire, soy sauce, garlic, and Tabasco in a bowl and set aside.
  4. Combine Creole seasoning, rosemary, oregano, cayenne, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Place shrimp and corn in a large deep roasting pan.
  6. Pour sauce mixture over shrimp and corn.
  7. Sprinkle dry ingredients over shrimp.
  8. Top shrimp with lemon slices and butter.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes, tossing and basting every 2-3 minutes, until shrimp begins to curl and turn pink!
  10. While shrimp is cooking, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. If shrimp is ready, do not rinse. If doing ahead, you can rinse with cold water and then toss with 2 T. of olive oil and wait for shrimp to be done!
  11. Heat french bread in oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Tear into chunks to be served on the side for dunking.
  12. Place pasta in individual bowls and top with shrimp and one piece of corn. Drizzle some of the sauce from the pan over each serving…enjoy!

Notes

The amount of people this serves totally depends on the people you are eating with and if you have any side dishes! Adjust the amount of shrimp based on your family/friends particular shrimp eating habits.
For this recipe (5 lbs.), for my family, it serves 6 adults and 4 teens, with some left over! (and we all love shrimp!) We typically do not serve a salad or any other side dish.
