Shrimp on the barbie

My wife’s favorite shrimp recipe is something called Gulf Coast shrimp from the bible.  The Barbecue Bible of course.  It is a bit involved so I don’t make it terribly often but it was high time to give it another go.

Grilled Shrimp

1 1/2 lbs shrimp as large as budget allows, peeled and deveined (reserve shells!)
1 c chicken stock
8 Tbsp butter
4-6 cloves garlic chopped
4 scallions chopped
hot sauce to taste
1 Tbsp worcestershire
couple bay leaves
sprigs of fresh thyme
sprrigs of fresh marjoram
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper (you have a mill right?)
3/4 c cane syrup

Cook the shells with the stock for about ten minutes and strain.  Combine everything the other ingredients and bring to a boil and reduce until thick.  Let it cool and then marinate the shrimp for 2-4 hours.  Grill and enjoy!  The book says cane syrup is from the south but the stuff I get is actually English (I also use it for Christmas sticky buns but that is another entry).  I reboiled the marinade after pulling the shrimp to try and add a glaze on the grill but it works fine without this.

  2. I love that recipe. Being from Maryland I couldn’t resist just a little Old Bay. It’s in my blood! Also, The Barbecue Bible sounds worth owning.

  3. Not that there’s not always excuse to buy another cookbook!
