This is a dish made famous by Pascal Manale’s restaurant on Napolean Avenue in New Orleans. It was known as “Barbecued Shrimp.”

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds large shrimp (7 pounds with head on)
  • 1 pound butter
  • 1/2 cup freshly-ground black pepper

Method

Step 1

Rinse and drain shrimp and place them, unpeeled, in a single layer in a large shallow baking pan.

Step 2

Cut each stick of butter in two to make eight pieces and place on top of the shrimp.

Step 3

Grind peppercorns in a spice grinder or blender to make 1/2 cup and sprinkle the pepper evenly over the shrimp.

Step 4

Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, turning the shrimp at least twice to absorb the pepper-butter on all sides.

Step 5

Serve directly from the pan with a loaf of sliced French bread so that guests can peel the shrimp as they go and sop up the sauce with hunks of bread.
