This recipe is by my good friend "Albedo" who resided for years in New Orleans. This is his authentic version.
Serves: 4 as appetizer; 2 as main dish
Prep.Time: 30 minutes

1 pound medium raw shrimp, in shells (headless)
1 ounce olive oil
4 cloves garlic -- minced
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of dried rosemary
Dash of ground black pepper
1 ounce sauterne wine
Put all ingredients except wine into a 12-inch heavy skillet; cook over high heat 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine; lower heat and cook about 10 minutes, or until wine evaporates. Serve shrimp in shells, with finger bowls.
