Chappy's BBQ Shrimp

Chappy's BBQ Shrimp
Chappy's Restaurant, Long Beach

Chappy Says... To make this dish a hit, serve with piping hot French bread. You have to dip the bread in the sauce. When serving, put out some bowls for your guests to put the shrimp shells into as they peel, dip, and, drink and be merry.

This dish can be served as the main dish, but Chappy likes to serve it as an appetizer with warm wet towels and lemon after.

  • 2 potatoes sliced thin lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
