    Now you know why Forrest Gump got rich on Bubba's shrimp! Personally, I think the best shrimp, crab (of course they are blue crabs), and oysters come from the Gulf coast. Of course, since I don't like oysters, I have to go on hearsay.

    My dad had a small shrimp net that he pulled with a small boat with 40 hp Mariner. Wonderful fun catching and then eating those shrimp! Ours were much smaller because we stayed in the lagoon.

    OK here is a rarity for me.. Im giving up my grilled shrimp recipe...

    I call it "Shellbacks" ala Dan

    About 20 of those large fuc*ers up there....
    Remove shrimps head
    Remove shrimps shell, leaving tail section ON...
    De-vein, clean and butterfly with knife
    Put into bowl

    Add the following ingredients:
    1 tbls soy sauce
    2 tbls terriyaki marinade/sauce
    1 tbls crushed garlic
    1 tbls olive oil
    1/2 tsp sugar

    Mix up the mixture and coat the shrimp

    Add a couple shakes of the following:
    I use McCormick Brand Spices.

    Ground Orange Peel (One of 2 Secret Ingredients!!!)
    Garlic salt
    Minced Onion
    Seafood Seasoning

    Cavenders Greek Flavoring (The Second!!!)

    And of course, a few shots of Emeril Legasse Essence...

    BAM!!!!

    Mix well, leave in fridge covered with saran wrap, as many hours as u can...

    When ready to eat, preheat grill MAX temp... It has to be Hades hot...

    Arrange Pollywogs on 3 sheets (stacked) of aluminum foil, making a "boat" with edges fllipped up to keep fluid from leaking out...

    Pour excess self-created marinade over nicely parade rest Pollywogs, and sprinkle Crumbled LUMP Crabmeat over entire formation of Pollywogs...

    Open ur freakin screamin hot grill cover and lay the "boat" and all its little "mateys" onto the red hot glowing grill... Close lid...

    Open lid after 30 seconds and leave open...
    (Depending on the size of said "Polywogs", they are gonna cook fast as hell..)

    About face the formation of Pollywogs and mix the Crabmeat all up in it..

    Once "Shellbacks" start to feel stiff, turn off heat and remove the "boat" and "Shellbacks" immediatly.... Their journey across the equator is now officially complete....

    (Anyone else notice Im drunk???)

    Serve with whatever u like, I make it with whatever rice dish I have available, steamed broccoli and some rolls and butter... Drank 3 Grolsch Blondes with it as well... Damn good bier...

    I'm afraid of the water down here to begin with. When an H-3 fished us out of the water I was floating in the gulf for about 10 mins and I kept my legs at the surface of the water afraid a shark would tear them off. Now I know I was right to be scared of the gulf! You can even get maimed by shrimp here!

    Those are pretty big shrimps...

    By the way, did you know that sharks don't like human flesh ? They think we taste like sh*t. That's why sometimes, when a guy get his arm/leg teared off by a shark, someone can find the body part and the doctor can sew it back in place.

    The reason why peoples (mostly surfers) are attacked by sharks is because the sharks confused them with seals. It is interresting to note that the percentage of surfers attacked by sharks are getting higher since the 80s. Mostly because surf boards design changed from long and narrow to smaller and larger... Making them look more "seals-like" for a shark.
