New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp


"This is a sure winner in any home. Be sure and cover the table with old newspapers to gather the shells and make clean up easy. Make sure to have warmed French bread to dunk in the 'sauce'! Bibs would be nice to protect your clothing from the sauce but not necessary."

First off, I hate anythiing marinated in Italian dresssing so I was skeptical of this recipe but decided to give it a try based on the great reviews. I had to alter it because I grilled the shrimp. Instead of ½ cup of butter I used ¼ cup of olive oil. I used 2 cloves fresh garlic, ½ fresh squeezed lemon and 2 tsp Old Bay. It was simply amazing. My neighbor who came to our barbeque also brought shrimp and I ended up feeling bad because everyone was raving and devouring my shrimp! Yes, they are that unbelievably good! I can't wait to make this recipe as written with the butter baked in the oven. I just wanted to let people know that it is delicious grilled too! Also, I peeled my shrimp and the flavor permeated the shrimp and was wonderful.


I'm hoping this 2nd review gets printed: We have made this many many times now and have served it to crowds of people, everyone, I mean everyone raves about it. old review: We made this recipe according to the directions and used 2 cloves of fresh garlic and a teaspoon of Old Bay. We loved it. A few days later we had company and doubled the recipe (add 5-10 mins cooking time as it does take a bit longer with more shrimp). We noticed on the first go-around that there was plenty of "dipping" sauce leftover in spite of us having gone thru a small loaf of French bread so on the second go-around we added a pint of fresh mushrooms. Still plenty of sauce for dipping and some mighty tasty mushrooms too!!! One of the best recipes on this site and incredibly easy to make. 5 stars +++.

I really am sorry but this recipe was horrible, all we could taste was the Zesty Italian Salad Dressing, my DH who is the LEAST picky eater you will ever meet, he eats EVERYTHING, threw his entire plate in the trash.
