Broiled Shrimp with Ketchup?

Here's a cute drawing from the ketchup pamphlet I blogged about yesterday. I wish I was where he is - with sun and book and a nice drink. He wouldn't be so thrilled, however, if he knew where he was headed...
Broiled Shrimp
2 pounds green shrimp (???)
3/4 cup Heinz Hot Ketchup
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup Heinz Vinegar
2 tablespoons salad oil
1 tablespoon Heinz Mustard
1 tablespoon Heinz Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
Clean shrimp, leaving on tails. Mix ketchup with remaining ingredients; pour over shrimp. Refrigerate about 2 hours. Place shrimp on broiler pan. Broil 4-5 inches from heat 5 minutes. Turn; brush with sauce. Broil 5 minutes more or until done. Makes 5-6 servings. May also be served as hors d'oeuvres.
I'm delighted with how many folks are writing me and sending me links about ketchup. It seems to be pretty popular stuff - unlike prunes...

In defense of the only true condiment, I offer this golden url: which will take you to the National Mustard Museum. The Curator of said museum also publishes an e-newsletter, billed as "Yellow Journalism at its Best"

I have been wanting to go there! Middleton, WI, right? Hmm... I did a library workshop there, it's not to far away. I have to make that a family outing!

Green just means raw ;) Actually the sauce sounds like it would taste a bit like barbecue sauce. I just might have to try this one out. Thank you for sharing all these interesting recipes :)
