BBQ SHRIMP (Serves 6)

6 pounds large shrimp, head on
1 lbs. butter, melted
10 cloves garlic, peeled and cracked open
3 lemons
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon dry ginger
1 tsp celery seed
1 tablespoon cardomom

Strip peel from lemons in long pieces, then juice the lemons. Add all ingredients to the melted butter. Place shrimp in a roasting pan and pour the sauce over. Marinate for up to 1 hour unrefrigerated or as long as overnight in the refrigerator. (If marinated under refrigeration, bring to room temperature before cooking.)
Cook shrimp under the broiler for 3 - 5 minutes on each side, until the shrimp begin to brown. Serve in soup bowls with plenty of hot French bread for dipping.
