Mr Jim's Louisiana Barbecued Shrimp

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by CARML mama

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.
