3 cloves of roasted garlic
1/2tsp fresh thyme
1/2tsp fresh oregano
1/2 cup good amber style beer
1/3 cup worcestershire sauce
1 cup fresh lobster stock
1/3 cup hot sauce (not too hot!!)

1/2tsp paprika
1 stick unsalted butter
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1lb fresh shrimp.
Fresh parsley and scallions to garnish.
1 loaf po' boy bread or french bread.
Shredded lettuce, tomato slices, mayo.

Combine garlic, thyme, oregano, beer, worcestershire sauce, lobster stock, hot sauce, black pepper and paprika in a sauce pot and reduce by about half or until desired thickness/flavor.
Quickly whisk in butter to emulsify the sauce.
Once sauce is mixed add lemon juice, parsley and scallions.
Saute shrimp in a pan until cooked about half way through, just enough to brown.
Add shrimp into warm sauce pot to continue cooking and become infused in the sauce.
Once finished make a sandwich using shrimp, some extra sauce, lettuce, tomato and mayo.
