Manale’s Barbeque Shrimp: A Hayley Favorite

I’ve had a recipe for Manale’s Barbeque Shrimp for several years, copied out of a cookbook that I no longer own. The Boy and I love it.

Strangely, I hadn’t made Manales’s Barbeque Shrimp for a number of years – so I rectified that this weekend by whipping up a batch for dinner.

Even more strangely, I’d never questioned why the recipe was called “Manale’s.” I also rectified that by doing a bit of googling. I learned Manale, now Pascal’s Manale, is a 100-year New Orleans dive, famous for – you guessed it – its barbequed shrimp.
