Method: Melt butter in heavy-bottomed skillet. Add garlic, shallot, green onion, celery and red bell pepper; sauté 3-5 minutes until vegetables wilt. Add shrimp, sachet of shells, basil, thyme and Worcestershire sauce; simmer, turning often, until shrimp are just pink and slightly curled (3-5 minutes).
