New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp

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."
