It seems like a waste of dry and liquid crab boil, lemons, peppercorns and anything else for the shrimp to only be in that deliciousness for a couple of minutes. If you let the shrimp steep for a longer time, they're overcooked. If you cook them for a shorter...

I ordered remoulade ($10), turtle soup, black drum over succotash ($24 lunch ...
