Grilled Shrimp with Bourbon Glaze

1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
3 tbs.'s butter, cut into pieces
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp.'s Cajun seasoning, divided
Salt and Tabasco to taste
2 tbs.'s bourbon

Season shrimp with 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning  In a 2 qt. saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir until golden. Remove from heat and add Bourbon, Worcestershire and Tabasco. Light mixture with a long match to burn alcohol off. On low heat, add butter, gradually, until sauce forms. Add other tsp.Cajun seasoning and salt. Brush shrimp with Bourbon glaze. Arrange shrimp in grill pan in a single layer. Grill on medium heat about 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Baste shrimp often. Cest bon, cher! Delicious!
