We heat the butter and oil over low heat in a large pan as we put the thyme, rosemary, pepper, cayenne, and paprika in a small prep bowl. When the butter has melted, we add the onions and cook for 10 minutes over medium-low heat. When the onions are golden and softened, we stir in the garlic. After a minute we add the spices and the shrimp and cook over medium heat. We stir often and after about 5 minutes, when the shrimp are almost cooked through, we add the Worcestershire sauce, wine, and lemon juice. We cook for another minute or two and serve over cooked rice.
