2 pounds shrimp, raw
1/3 to 1/2 pound salt pork
1/2 cup flour
1 large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt

Shell and devein shrimp. Cut salt pork in very small cubes and fry slowly in heavy pan until brown and crisp. Remove pork and set aside. Add flour to drippings; cook and stir over low heat until dark brown in color. Add onion and cook until tender. Add about 1/2 cup boiling water and stir until gravy is thick; add shrimp, salt, several dashes cayenne, cooked salt pork and a little chopped parsley. Cover and simmer about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Gravy will thin as shrimp cooks. (More hot water may be added, cautiously, if needed for desired consistency.) Serve over rice.
