Shrimp Pilau ( pronounced pi-lou or pi-lo) is colloquially referred to as Shrimp "Perlo" and is simply a dish consisting of rice, spices and meat or seafood, in this case shrimp. Since most of the liquid is absorbed before the shrimp are added, the shrimp are cooked by conduction of heat and the steam produced from the hot rice. This is a little different from the more common method of steaming food. Nevertheless, this is an unusually delicious recipe, which is sure to please.

Cleaning Raw or Cooked Shrimp
The cleaning method is the same for raw or cooked shrimp, but it is simple to do when raw. (1) To peel hold the tail of the shrimp in one hand; slip thumb of other hand under shell between swimmerets and lift off several segments of shell. Repeat, if necessary, removing all but the tail section. (2) If tail section is to be removed, hold the tail section and squeeze with the thumb and forefinger. Pull the shrimp meat with the other hand until it is released from the shell. (3) the vein (usually black) located along the upper curve is commonly referred to as the "sand vein." Most people prefer to remove it to prevent any sand or "grit" in the cooked shrimp. It can be removed before or after cooking, but is much easier to remove before cooking. The vein which is located on the under curve is part of the circulatory system and need not be removed. To remove the "sand vein," make a cut with a sharp knife about 1/8 inch deep along the upper curve of the shrimp; then rinse away the sand vein under cold water.

Tips For Smoking Fish
Wood chips from apple, oak, hickory and cherry provide excellent smoke flavor to fish.
Soak 1 pound of hardwood chips in 2 quarts of water for several hours or overnight.
Excellent smoked fish can be produced in (hooded or covered) electric, gas, or charcoal grills. Adjust the temperatures according to recipes used. If available, use oven thermometer with a charcoal grill. The procedure is the same for all types of grills.
When smoking fish, keep the heat low. If using a charcoal grill, fewer briquettes than with an average broiling fire are necessary. Evenly spread 1/3 of the wet chips over the briquettes. The wet chips produce smoke and lower the temperature.
Very low temperatures, 150 degrees F.-175 degrees F. are not absolutely essential in smoke fish cookery, but give the fish a stronger smoke flavor. Good results may be accomplished by using higher temperatures, up to 300 degrees F., reducing cooking time. Fish takes on a smoky flavor quickly.
Cooking times for outdoor grilling and smoke cooking will vary according to the type of equipment you use, the heat of the fire, and the distance of the seafood from the source of the heat.
Smoked fish can be held in the refrigerator at 35 degrees F - 40 degrees F, with no loss of quality, loosely wrapped for three days.
To freeze smoked fish, wrap loosely and allow to cool in refrigerator. Then rewrap in moisture-vapor proof wrapping and place in freezer. Smoked fish can be held up to 3 months in the freezer. To use, remove freezer paper, wrap in aluminum foil and heat for 20 to 30 minutes at 300 degrees F.
Type of Fish
Fat fish such as mullet, mackerel, or blue fish are best for smoking. Lean fish such as grouper, snapper, flounder, red fish and trout can be smoked with good results if basted frequently with cooking oil during smoking process. Baste fat fish only near the end of cooking time. Close hood on grill and open vent slightly to keep smoke and air circulating.
1 cup smoked flaked
In a 2-quart bowl, combine all ingredients except onion rolls and garnish. Portion approximately 1/3 cup of fish mixture on bottom half of each roll. Cover with top half of roll. Wrap each sandwich in heavy-duty aluminum foil; place on grill about 5 inches from moderately hot coals. Heat 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish with olive on a wooden pick. Makes 4 servings.
1 1/2 pounds smoked fish
Remove skin and bones from fish. Flake the fish well. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Chill at least one hour. Makes approximately 3 1/2 cups spread.
4 pounds mullet butterfly fillets, or
other butterflied fish fillets, fresh or frozen
TO PREPARE HICKORY CHIPS: Cover hickory chips with water and soak in a cool place for several hors or overnight.
TO PREPARE FOR SMOKING: To smoke fish, use a hooded or covered charcoal, electric or gas grill. The heat must be kept low. If using charcoal, fewer briquettes are necessary than for regular grilling. Cover charcoal or ceramic briquettes with approximately 1/3 of the wet chips to lower the temperature and create smoke, which flavors the fish. Remaining chips are added as needed throughout the cooking process.
Thaw fish if frozen. Clean and rinse in cold water. In a 2-gallon bowl, combine salt and 1 gallon water; add bag of crab boil. Add fish and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove fish from brine; rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Place the fish fillets, skin side down, on a well-greased grill approximately 4 to 6 inches from smoking chips. Close hood on grill and open vent slightly to keep smoke and air circulating. Smoke fish approximately 1 hour at 150 degrees F. to 175 degrees F., or for 30 to 45 minutes at 200 degrees F. Baste fish with cooking oil near the end of cooking time. The fish is done when the cut surface is golden brown and the flesh flakes easily when tested with a fork. Makes 6 servings.

1/2 cup catsup
Combine all ingredients. Makes approximately 1 cup sauce.
This is the ticket to the best tarter sauce I think you'll ever find. Ingredients are as follows:
1 small onion
To prepare this right you need to grate about 1/2 of the onion into a bowl. Next grate the pickles into the same bowl as the onion both should be grated using the smallest holes of the grater. After this the capers should be placed on a chopping board and chopped until they look kind of pulpy then added to the onions and pickles. Next add the mayo and mix all the ingredients well. Lastly add the vinegar and salt and pepper to taste (not more than 1 tsp. of vinegar and not too heavy on the salt and pepper).
This should be made hours ahead and placed in the refrigerator for the flavors to blend.
If your taste is not for the sweet tarter, then you can substitute dill pickles for the sweet ones and about 1 clove of pressed garlic.
