Saint's 44 New Orleans Shrimp!
Saint's New Orleans Shrimp
This is the way I got this recipe from a friend in New Orleans the day after the Saint's mighty victory in Super Bowl 44. I tried it the next night, and thought it was great. Only in New Orleans could this be thought up.
"I just tried this recipe last night and thought you might enjoy it. It is John Besh's take on NO BBQ shrimp, which is not your shrimp on the barbe BBQ shrimp. You might like his new cookbook My New Orleans The Cookbook.
For the sauce base:
Heat olive oil over high heat. Add the shrimp heads and shells,and cook, stiring often, for 5 mins.
Add the rest and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to moderate and simmer until reduced by half. Strain and reserve.
- 1 TB olive oil
- 2 cups shrimp heads and shells
- 1/2 cup (yes really) Worcestershire
- 2 TBs cracked black pepper
- 2 TBs creole spice
- 1/2 TSP whole cloves
- 2 bay leaves
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 cups water
For the shrimp:
Season the shrimp with a little salt and lots of pepper. Put the shrimp and the sauce base, cream and butter in a large skillet over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 mins. Remove shrimp. Reduce sauce by half until it's a rich mocha color. Pour over the shriimp. Serve with French bread.
- 2 lbs shrimp peeled
- Cracked black pepper
- 1 cup sauce base
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup butter
This was enough for 3 people. Very rich and very good." Linda Marsalis
This also begs to be played with. My first guess would be a couple small, green, long and hot fresh chilies chopped and added when final sauce reduced, or maybe some scallions or such. A couple teaspoons of coconut cream at the very end. Or maybe a lobster. Cheers
