1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 

1 teaspoon Creole seasoning 

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper 


1 1/2 pounds peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp, tail on (16- to 20-count)

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, for garnish
