      Directions

      Melt butter in large saute pan. Add garlic, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until garlic starts to sizzle. Add shrimp and saute until pink and almost cooked through, about 2 minutes.

Serve over rice with crusty bread on the side, if desired, and garnish with diced bell peppers.
      Fat Fish Blue Hennessey Cream Sauce:
      2 tablespoons cornstarch
      2 tablespoons water
      1 tablespoon butter
      2 tablespoons minced shallots
      1 tablespoon cognac (recommended: Hennessey)
      1 tablespoon shrimp base (bouillon)
      2 cups heavy cream
      Salt and freshly ground black pepper
      In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the water and set aside. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat and add shallots. Saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Carefully add cognac and simmer until alcohol vaporizes, about 1 minute. Add shrimp base, heavy cream and salt and pepper, to taste. Simmer while stirring for 3 minutes. Add cornstarch mixture and simmer, while stirring, until thickened. Set aside and keep warm.
