Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-heat heat. When almost melted, add onions, garlic, shallot, salt, all 3 peppers, basil, thyme, and oregano. Stir well. Add shrimp and sauté for about 1 minute. Add mushrooms and 4 tablespoons of the stock and shake the pan back and forth to combine. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, to the pan while continuously shaking the pan back and forth over the heat. **Don't stir because it will break up the sauce**
Before the last of the butter melts, add the fresh parsley and the remaining 2 tablespoons of stock, still shaking the pan over the heat, until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed together and sauce is consistency of cream.
Serve immediately with pasta, grits, rice, or on it's own with a big piece of french bread.
