Holiday Tips For The Home Cook by Sara Ann Harris, Louisiana Seafood Board (NAPSA) - Wild, fresh shrimp are a traditional holiday favorite in Louisiana. So, the Louisiana Seafood Board asked award-winning Chef Frank Brigtsen the key to unlocking the rich flavor of these delicacies of the delta. Chef offered these tips for the home cook.
Brigtsen suggests serving New Orleans BBQ Shrimp with a rice patty, pasta or sauteed veggies.
Prepare shrimp stock. Peel shrimp (see below). Place heads & shells in pot. Add enough water to cover; boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain and set aside.
Heat heavy skillet 1-2 minutes over high heat. Add 3 Tbsp. butter, rosemary, pepper & shrimp. Shake skillet back & forth vigorously and cook just until shrimp turn pink.
Add seasoning & garlic, then shake skillet constantly for 5 seconds. Add Lea & Perrins and beer. Cook until liquid is almost evaporated, 15-20 seconds. Add 1/4 cup shrimp stock and bring to boil. Cook 20-30 seconds to allow stock to reduce. Add 4 Tbsp. butter. Reduce heat. Shake skillet until butter melts. Sopping up the sauce is half the fun.
