My first, mind-blowing experience with BBQ shrimp: Grover's Oyster Bar was a dusty-floored little shack on Irving Park Road in Chicago. We used to stop there on our way back from Cubs baseball games, have a couple of raspberry daiquiris (the best!) and some seafood. When I first tried BBQ shrimp, I couldn't believe the flavor! Incredible dish. Unfortunately, on a later trip into the city, I looked for Grover's ... I believe there was a burned-out shell of a building where it used to stand. So, R.I.P. Grover's, you were wonderful. This is for you! Prep time includes marinating.
