Barbecue Shrimp - It Came to New Orleans from Chicago

A New Orleans businessman came back from a trip there and when he began raving about a shrimp dish he'd encountered, the people of NOLA (New Orleans Louisiana) had to try it.  To avoid any association with a damn Yankee thing, they made haste to call it New Orleans Barbecue Shrimp despite the fact the shrimp never came near a bbq pit.  

Having heard about it, we had to try it and fell in love.  Not one to be a hog, here's the ingredients and how tos:

New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

2 lbs large shrimp in their shells

1 cup of butter

juice of 2 lemons - 2 teasp - minced garlic

2TWorcestershire sauce 2T black pepper

Wash and clean the shrimp and lay them out on a large baking sheet.  Heat everything else and drizzle over shrimp, adding the squeezed lemon quarters as garnish adding the black pepper.  Bake at 375 for 15 - 20 minutes.

Pascale's Manale is the restaurant, and is well known and since it's delicious, no wonder they're still packing in the cash customers.  Ask them to use shucked shrimp or you'll spend your dinner time peeling - and need I say it? wolf it down
