Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
Have not made this particular recipe before. Just picked up five pounds fresh heads-on shrimp for tonight. Anyone here able to attest to this recipe?

Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe

quote:

16 jumbo shrimp (12 per pound, about 1 1/2 pounds), with heads and unpeeled

1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

2 teaspoons cracked black pepper

2 teaspoons Creole seasoning

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cubed

French bread as accompaniment


In a large skillet combine shrimp, Worcestershire, lemon juice, black peppers, Creole seasoning, and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until shrimp turn pink, about 1 minute on each side. Reduce heat to moderate and stir in butter, a few cubes at a time, stirring constantly and adding more only when butter is melted. Remove skillet from heat. Place shrimp in a bowl and pour sauce over top. Serve with French bread for dipping.


Also, picking up a few loaves of Gambino's french bread to stop up the sauce.

I attest. It’s the only BBQ shrimp recipe I make.

I find most recipes to be too oily. This isn’t. It’s rich and creamy. I’ll see if I can find a photo. I’ve made it a million times. Usually serve over cheese grits.

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
Is there a recipe for Mr. B's cajun spice? I make my own, and the family loves it, but if his is special and unique, would like to try it.

Also, timing is everything. So do you melt your butter in advance or have the butter softened at room temp before you add to the mix? Just want to avoid cooking too long and making them hard to peel.

*Nevermind on the seasoning recipe: found it: Mr. B's creole spice recipe

quote:

1 1/2 cups paprika
3/4 cup ground black pepper
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/3 cup granulated garlic
1/3 cup dried thyme
1/3 cup dried oregano
1/3 cup dried basil
1/4 cup granulated onion
I won't be making as much as in the recipe, so will cut it to maybe a quarter of what's shown.

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
I use regular ole Tony’s and it’s still plenty good.

I have the butter out and add it one tablespoon at a time on low heat and don’t add more until the one before is melted. But there’s wiggle room. You can add 2-3 at a time once it is looking rich. You just don’t want to be “cooking” it. I get it all melted pretty quickly.

I apparently haven’t snapped a photo of it since 2015. Some are missing heads here (maybe I bought shrimp that had been roughed up) but I usually do full head on.

Last one's I made were using Pascale's Manale recipe. That recipe uses margarine instead of butter and adds a half cup white wine. This are my last couple of batches.

I follow the Mr. B’s method of handling the butter, but use River Road bbq shrimp seasoning.

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
That is one of the best improved techniques for bbq shrimp. It was developed by Gerard Maras as they were opening Mr. B’s. He thought traditional baked bbq shrimp was terrible and sought to make a better version. And he did.

Manales were awful the last time I went there. Oily with no flavor. Never again.

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
I had the Mr. B’s recipe, at the restaurant, several weeks ago. The consistency of the sauce was excellent. The flavor was very good. I prefer the seasoning and flavor of Paul Prudhomme’s recipe.

I made BBQ Shrimp last week using Mr. B’s recipe. It was delicious. For the creole seasoning, I used LeBlanc’s CS as I find Tony’s too salty for some dishes.

I know the downvote will rain but I make mine with peeled deviened shrimp so the masses can eat it wo the mess. Just cook them less time. It’s all about the sauce anyway. And def cheese the grits

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
I initially left shells for first batch. They were difficult to peel. Probably an execution issue on my end.

Second batch, I peeled shrimp but left tails on.

I didn’t notice a difference in flavor whatsoever between peeled and non-peeled. The peeled shrimp were much easier to consume.

I’ll be going head off and peeled shrimp from here on out for my family.

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
There’s not much of a difference in taste if it’s just tails, but there’s a noticeable difference when comparing head-on or not because a ton of flavorful gunk comes out of the head when peeling.

That said, I like it just fine without too.

re: Mr. B's BBQ Shrimp recipe
Found my pic of this recipe. I go 1 tbsp of butter at a time like the recipe says, and just regular Tony's. It's so damn good with fresh French bread.

I leave the head and tail on and just peel the shell prior to cooking. The head adds flavor and the tail stays on for looks. These two are easy to remove when eating.

I usually make it with some rosemary and also spicy V8. I'll have to find my recipe but it's also baked about 20 min in oven.
