I hadn't made this in a long time. Brought some fresh gulf shrimp home from Galveston with this dish in mind.

This is the basic recipe but I change it up sometimes, depending on what I have on hand.
This time I used PookieG DaYum seasoning in place of the chili powder. Loved it!!

For the sauce....
1 tsp cracked black pepper
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp of chili powder
two pinches each of
thyme
basil and
oregano
1 1/2 to 2 TBS liquid crab boil
1 1/2 TBS dijon mustard
about 1/2 tsp tabasco or hot sauce
2 sticks of butter (or more)

fried a bit of bacon...removed the bacon for topping later.

added the rest of the ingredients to the bacon drippings and let it simmer for about 10 minutes..

This is a messy dish but I don't mind the butter and juices running down to my elbows while I peel the shrimp. lol I'm washable.


Thanks for looking!

Jason, thanks! This batch turned out pretty tasty. Maybe I was just hungry. :laugh: I'm a hands-on kind of person too. Love finger food! :grin:

Wiping the drool off of my keyboard. Reminds me of a visit to New Orleans. Fresh shrimp doesn't happen very often near Lake Superior.

Looks great Jeanie! Reminds me of a restaurant in Marina Del Rey called Killer Shrimp.

Oh man those look good. So yummy when you have real shrimp cooked in the shell. That farmed stuff doesn't even come close. I was fortunate to find some gulf shrimp a few weeks back and was given a complement that said those were the best BBQd shrimp they ever tasted...

I agree with you, gulf shrimp is mighty fine! I'm not fond of the store bought farmed stuff either. Has a strange texture to it. When I can, I raise my own... http://cowgirlscountry.blogspot.com/2007/11/raising-your-own-shrimp.html They're tasty...but when the weather is too dry, I'm like you, I hit the gulf for shrimp. Thanks so much for the kind comment!

Look- La- La! Awesome!

Thank you Gerry! :grin:

Very cool raising your own shrimp. I did not know you could do that. Does fresh water chage the taste?

You never cease to Amaze me!

They don't taste a whole lot different than salt water. At least I can't tell with mine, I get them live out of the pond. My pond has pretty much a constant flow of fresh water comin' into it. I've tasted freshwater prawns from the store and they have a weird texture that I don't care for. Not sure what causes that. Thanks SD!

I've not heard of Deanies, but I would have like it! Thanks!

Thanks Adams! One of my relatives used to talk about Pascal's...she loved the place!

Great idea Greg! lol I do wish your lovely Mrs.. wasn't allergic but hope you get to try these sometime. Thanks friend!

Thank you Cake M1x! If the "gravy" is too spicy, I add more butter to cut the heat before adding the shrimp. Hope you have great luck with it!

Jeanie, my wife wants to go back to New Orleans but I am trying to convince her the food is better in Oklahoma. That is one pretty cook.

Cowgirl the grub looks phenomenal as always. I could eat a wheel barrow load of it. If you ever find yourself in New Orleans, whip into OceanA and try their BBQ Shrimp. While you are there go ahead and try their version of chargrilled oysters smothered in that cheese and butter sauce that they use. They are both simply spectacular. Again, great looking cook as always.

Thank you Marty!! I might have to agree with your Mrs.. New Orleans would be hard to beat! :becky:

SGH, I bet those oysters are amazing! I will definitely hit OceanA next time I go down there. Thanks for the info!
Had some great oysters at Gaido's in Galveston and have been trying to figure out a way to replicate them. If you have any good grilled oyster recipes, I'd love to try them!
Thanks so much for the kind comment. :grin:
