I NEVER thought I'd say this but this recipe is better than mine. It comes from Dickie Brennan's Palace Cafe cookbook. Leave the shrimp out, and you have a great New Orleans barbecue sauce recipe. At Palace Cafe, they toss fried oysters in this sauce and serve on French bread to make the best poboy you've ever imagined! Either serve the shrimp with the shells on at the table and give everyone bibs and paper towels, or peel them before serving. We serve them with the shells on! However they are served they must be served with loads of French bread, warmed, and thickly sliced.
