Shrimp Picayune

One of my favorite places to eat is Water Street Oyster Bar in Corpus Christi and the one menu item I can’t leave without eating is Shrimp Picayune. It’s a slightly sweet and spicy dish that has such an amazing sauce I will guard it like a mama bear and growl at anyone who tries to dip a crust of bread into it. Unfortunately, I will also eat an entire loaf of bread to make sure that not one drop of it goes to waste. There is absolutely nothing better than spicy, sweet shrimp and crusty Italian Bread!

Disclaimer: mine is not quite as good as theirs but, if I can’t make it to Corpus, it is close enough to assuage my cravings.

Instructions
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add shrimp and allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove shrimp from marinade and arrange in a flat layer (can be touching) in the bottom of a shallow baking dish.
  3. Pour sauce over shrimp and broil for 5-7 minutes. Shrimp should be pink.
  4. Serve in shallow bowls with Italian or French Bread for dipping (you do not want a drop of the sauce to go to waste...it really is that good)!
Recipe Notes

I have also made this with scallops and it was amazing. I'm pretty sure I could make this with an old shoe and it would be amazing!

it is also essential that you serve this with lots of bread, preferably a crusty Italian or French bread.
