Louisiana-Style Shrimp

I've been wanting to try this recipe out from my crock pot cookbook for a while now. I had some time, so I decided to make it for dinner tonight. It only cooks for a little over an hour in the crock pot. The ingredients are real simple and it turned out pretty good. I'd probably try to add a little more of the the liquid to make it more soupy. But otherwise the flavors in this dish turned out well.

1 lb. shrimp, unpeeled, rinsed
1 stick butter, diced
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. seafood seasoning (like Old Bay seasoning)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
hot cooked rice

1) Grease crock pot. Place shrimp on bottom. Add butter, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, seafood seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Cook on high for 1 1/4 hours.

2) Turn off crock pot. Stir in lemon peel. Let stand uncovered for 5 minutes. Serve in a shallow soup bowl over rice.
