Best Summer Recipes: Broiled Shrimp

Men in south Louisiana are often great cooks. My dad isn't one of them, but fortunately, mom's friends husband's are. This is a recipe from Mr. Jess Waguespack. 

I've made this as long as I've been married. Gulf shrimp feels like a treat to most; the peel and eat way feels casual. For a more elegant approach, I peel these after they are broiled and serve over angel hair pasta. 

Broiled Shrimp

6 dozen large shrimp

2 sticks butter, melted

2 cloves garlic

3 limes

pulp of one lime

1/3 cup vermouth

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

8 dashes Tabasco pepper sauce

1/2 cup olive oil

Arrange shrimp in one layer in a shallow pan. Mix all sauce ingredients together in blender and pour over shrimp. Broil 10-15 minutes. Turn over and broil until done, maybe 5 more minutes. 

Serve with toasted french bread.
