Salt & Pepper Shrimp at Evelyn & Olive 

There's an unwritten rule at Evelyn & Olive, downtown's Jamaican and Southern-style restaurant and wine bar: Everything tastes better with a little Boom Boom sauce. Made from chili peppers, garlic, mayonnaise, tomato, and pickle, it's a cross between traditional hot sauce and remoulade. Not too spicy and full of flavor, it definitely makes every dish sing a little louder. My favorite pairing is with the Salt & Pepper Shrimp. Very lightly breaded and fried, the crispy white shrimp serve as the perfect vehicle for the Boom Boom sauce. Listed as a starter, the Salt & Pepper Shrimp is a great way to start the meal with friends. However, the generous serving can also make a great entrée, if, like me, you find it hard to share.
