Okay, you Florida folks -- I'm looking for a recipe for fried shrimp like they make in St Augustine -- you know the restaurant -- the converted gas station next to the antique shop -- yep, that's the one. The one with Minorcan clam chowder and Datil-do-it sauce on the table next to the bird peppers in jars of vinegar.
The butterflied fried shrimp there (and at that other restaurant in the same town) are haunting my dreams....but HOW do I make them?
I've googled til I was crosseyed, and I got nothin. I've even given serious thought to calling and begging them to even just point me in the right direction (launching a guilt trip about how I live overseas and can't get home to have shrimp, boohooo...but with several military bases close by, I figure I'm not the first to try that tactic and am guessing it's not going to work).
What say you -- can you help me?
