“This is our adaptation of a recipe found, I believe, in Southern Living. It's an attempted copycat of Pascal's Manale's amazing Barbecue Shrimp. I don't think it quite as good as the original, but it's pretty darn close! Use head-on shrimp if you can find them ( I never can.) Always cook the shrimp in the sauce. This is MESSY, so put some wet wipes out on the table. Serve with crusty bread--as a waitress at Pascal's Manale said to me once, "the best part is soppin' up the sauce." Green salad and corn on the cob round out your meal!”
