    BigFatMomma's Note:

    Martin and Joy were some of the best people in the world. Our family loved them so much. They are truly missed. This is their famous shrimp recipe. Billie Moore writes “When our friends…serve this, they advise all guests to wear old clothes!” There are no definite measurements available, and when you look at the spicing directions, remember, the shells are on the shrimp!

      This is very close to a recipe I use, but I shell the shrimp first, so I ease up on the spices a bit. Be careful not to overcook, and definitely provide lots of bread for mopping up the elixir!

      Cut the butter and oil amounts in half and it was still great! Used very large pink shrimp, and 3 tablespoons of the worcestershire/tabasco amounts and it was pretty spicy this way. Thanks for an easy, tasy recipe. Make sure to get a big loaf of crusty french bread to dip into the goodness!
