Ruth's Chris New Orleans-Style BBQ Shrimp

I give 100% credit to a Facebook friend who shared this recipe and I totally stole it without saying anything.  We often do our birthdays at Ruth's Chris over the past 8 years (we have 3 within our general area), but I've only ever had filet mignon, OBVIOUSLY.  So next time we go, maybe we'll share this or something, so I can compare to what I made.  Holy butter sauce.  It was so tasty.  I hope Ruth's Chris is as good as mine!

Ruth's Chris New Orleans-Style BBQ Shrimp
from Just a Pinch

20 large (16/20) shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 oz canola oil
2-3 tbsp green onions, chopped
2 oz dry white wine
1 tsp chopped garlic
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp paprika
2 full sticks of salted butter

Heat a large skillet over high heat.  Add oil and then shrimp and cook until they are almost done.  Remove shrimp and set aside.  Add green onions to the oil and cook for 1 minute.  Add white wine and simmer until it's reduced by half.  When reduced, add garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, cayenne and paprika.  Shake the pan and cook for 1 minute.  Reduce heat to low.  Cut butter in small chunks and slowly add to pan, shaking to melt butter.  Add the shrimp back to the pan and heat through. Serve hot.
