Barbecue Shrimp

In New Orleans, this dish is a staple on restaurant menus.

Try this side: While the shrimp are baking to perfection, you can add some frozen Texas toast to the oven. Bake 6 slices according to package directions, and use the bread to sop up the rich buttery sauce.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
