The Football Chick

My little tumblr universe is 90% about sports (mostly football), 9% about cars and fashion, and 1% random stuff. I like a lot of teams and players, but I'm partial to the Redskins who I let break my heart every year. Oh yeah, I can be completely silly too. My other blogs are:, and

Never to early to start tailgating says Chesapeake Bay area native Chris Schlesinger. Here’s his recipe for some spicy shrimp you can throw on the grill on gameday.

Baltimore-style Old Bay Grilled Shrimp
1 stick of butter
12 large shrimp, with tails on
2 Tablespoons of Old Bay
2 lemon quarters
Tabasco sauce or favorite hot sauce to taste
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Heat grill to medium-high. Put butter in medium-sized metal bowl and melt on grill. Place shrimp on three or four skewers and rest on a plate. Pour about one quarter of melted butter over shrimp, coating both sides. Set butter aside, keeping warm. Sprinkle shrimp generously on both sides with Old Bay. Grill shrimp until well seared, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, flipping just once. Grill lemon quarters on both fleshy sides until well marked. Add Tabasco to the reserved melted butter and stir. Remove shrimp from skewers and place into bowl of butter and Tabasco. Squeeze juiced from grilled lemons. Add a dash more Old Bay. Sprinkle with parsley and toss. Serves 2 to 4.
