From - There are three species of gulf shrimp that have worldwide commercial importance, pink, gulf white, and brown. Brown shrimp constitute nearly half of the United States shrimp harvests. Gulf shrimp, unlike other varieties of shrimp, do not survive well in captivity and thus are not cultured. The only sources of gulf shrimp are wild.

2 pounds jumbo shrimp
1 stick butter
1 lemon juiced
Seasoned salt like Season-All or Slap Ya Mama
1 tbsp oregano
6 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbsp black pepper

Peel and devein the shrimp and season with the seasoned salt. Melt butter in skillet, add shrimp and cook until pink. Sprinkle lemon juice, oregano, black pepper and garlic over the shrimp. Simmer 15 minutes. Adjust salt and pepper to taste if needed. Have some warm French bread or homemade bread as a side to not let any sauce go to waste.
