Louisiana "barbecued" shrimp never touch an actual barbecue. Created at Pascal's Manale restaurant in New Orleans in 1954, the recipe has become a southern staple. This version is served with French or Sourdough Bread for soaking up the rich sauce. Found this recipe in Martha Stewart Living, Aug 2009.... IT IS AMAZING and easily doubled. We served this in a shallow bowl so everyone could soak up a bit of the flavorful sauce!

Took a risk and made this for the first time for my mother's birthday for 18 people- it was a hit! Served the shrimp over white rice with scallions- yummy! Made the recipe multiplied by 5. Had grilled veggies, a salad and bread on the side.

What a delicious way to serve shrimp. I used jumbo shrimps in this dish and am really happy that I did. What a taste treat, great flavor and textures. We really enjoyed the shrimps prepared this way, they were hot and spicy but not overly, you could still taste the sweet shrimp. Served with Rice With Coconut Milk for a very special meal. I will definitely be preparing these quick and easy to make shrimp again, thanks so much for sharing your treasure. Made for Pac Spring Safari 2013.

Delicious! Will be making this often. I will try to find larger shrimp next time, but it work well with the medium tail on shrimp. Juices were great with the bread soaked in them! Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
