As the height of the Louisiana shrimp season approaches with the opening of inshore shrimping, I start my annual craving for all things shrimp. Sometimes I feel like a character in the movie Forrest Gump as I reel off my list of favorites: shrimp gumbo, shrimp Creole, shrimp jambalaya, fried shrimp, stuffed shrimp, oh well, you get it. But my absolute favorite is the classic New Orleans barbecued shrimp. Only one problem in the Graham household: it is my wife’s least favorite. She just doesn’t get the head-on, shell-on shrimp swimming in a peppery bath of butter with a loaf of French bread to sop it all up with. And I say: What’s not to get?
