Personal Notes:
Note: If you remove the heads of fresh shrimp as soon as you get them - breaking the head toward the underside of the shrimp - the vein will come right out.

We lived in Savannah from 1990-1996. This was the most common large "party menu" in the low country. Usually it is cooked outside in large pots over an open fire or gas cooker, but it adapts well to stove cooking, just in smaller quantities. With slaw and bread it makes a wonderful get together. I forgot to add that you should drink a beer each time you are waiting 10 minutes. This really make a great party!!!! Many cooks also use about half beer for part of the cooking water.

This recipe is especially for the men. They even enjoy cooking it.
