Cooking with the Glenn’s-Barbeque Sauce


Summer is gone, but our love for barbecuing never ends. So here is one of my favorite barbecue sauce recipes and a use for this sauce. I will combine it with a bit of Creole seasoning and shrimp!

The Sauce

3 Cups Ketchup,¾ Cup Molasses

2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce,1 Tbsp Tabasco (or other hot sauce)

¼ Tsp Ground Ginger,½ Tsp Granulated Garlic

¼ Tsp Onion Powder,3 Tbsp Brown Sugar

1Tbsp Chili Powder,2 Tbsp Sesame Oil

3 Tbsp Vinegar,2 Cups Tomato Puree

Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a sauce pot and simmer for 45mins; serve hot

Creole Seasoning,2 ½ Tbsp Paprika

2 Tbsp Salt,2 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Black Pepper,1 Tbsp Onion Powder

1 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper,2 Tbsp Dried Oregano

2 Tbsp Dried Thyme,1 Tbsp Dried Basil

In a bowl, add and mix all ingredients. Store in a airtight container

Barbecue Shrimp

Thread Shrimp (as many as you would like to eat, peeled and de-veined) onto skewers (if you are using wooden skewers, soak for 30 minutes). Sprinkle Creole seasoning lightly over shrimp after brushing with melted butter. Barbecue the shrimp until done (about 2-3 minutes per side).

Move the shrimp to plates and dip into the barbecue sauce (there will be enough sauce to use for other dishes).  Serve with rice.
