New Orleans Style Barbecued Shrimp

When you are feeling super virtuous – like you have just finished running a marathon, raked the entire yard free of leaves or cleaned out the attic for the first time in 23 years (this is real for me – I have yet to do it) – then you need to make New Orleans BBQ Shrimp.

There is this sauce. It’s a little over the top. It contains three things: butter, beer and hot sauce. Truth be told, I would make the sauce without the shrimp and just sop it up with French bread. There is usually a fight at the table between King Daddy, Dammit Boy and I to secure the last ribbons of sauce from the bottom of the dish.

This would actually be a great dish to serve on Super Bowl Sunday, which I am not supposed to say because the words “Super Bowl” are highly trademarked by the NFL and some registered agent of the aforementioned organization will probably be knocking at my door with a cease and desist order any second now. Screw ’em.

By the way, may I digress to say that this New England Patriots under-inflated football thing really chaps my hide. If you are a cheater you should forfeit the game. Under-inflated footballs are cheating. The NFL is “investigating.” What a bunch of wimps.

Please, please hop on over to the Char-Broil LIVE site to take a peek at the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp recipe. I am enlisting the Peoples of the South and Friends of Peoples of the South to help me out here. I now have a tracking code. Dammit. It tells the people at Char-Broil how many of my readers come to their site. You can simply click the link while you are reposing in the bathroom or surfing the internet at work. By the way, cell phones in the bathroom bother me but computers do not.

Once again, I digress. Please CLICK HERE and help an old Southern woman out.

    The recipe looks fantastic! What type of Cajun seasoning do you buy, though??!
