How to make it

  • Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onion and garlic, cook until translucent -- about 5 minutes.
  • Add parsley, oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne -- cook about 2 minutes, until highly fragrant.
  • Remove from heat and add cracker crumbs, stir to moisten.
  • Stir in wine.
  • This concoction should have the consistency of play-dough and should form a ball if you squeeze some in your hand. Add additional wine or cracker crumbs as needed to achieve that sort of consistency.
  • Set aside.
  • Position oven rack 6 inches below heat source and preheat broiler.
  • Butterfly the shrimp.
  • Lay butterflied shrimp on ungreased baking sheets with tail sections curing upward.
  • Press about 1 T of the cracker mixture on each shrimp -- you'll need to pat it down firmly with your fingertips.
  • Broil until topping is firm and golden brown and shrimp are coral pink, about 8 minutes.
  • Arrange shrimp on a platter, top with Creole mayonnaise and garnish with lemon wedges.
