New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

If you haven’t figured it out by now, we really love a shrimp recipe around Discovery Cooking and this BBQ shrimp recipe is another of those New Orleans recipes that really lives up to the kind of things we really love — New Orleans and shrimp. You can’t really do much better than this. And best of all, it comes together in a heart beat. And, it’s also not really something I’d normally think of as New Orleans. But  it is, and it truly comes off well.

First of all — although it sounds like a barbecue, it really is a stove top dish, but with a real interesting sauce, made mostly from Worcestershire sauce and butter. A lot of butter for a shrimp meal. But believe me, it really does come off like a barbecue. I suppose you could even do it in a hot pan over an out door pit, but that seems like more trouble than it’s worth. This also make for a great appetizer, if that’s what you’re looking for.

In any case, give this a try. You’ll love that sauce, believe me.

Oh and yes, you can use more or less Creole spices and more or less garlic — to your taste.

Serves 4
This is a simple but amazing barbecue shrimp dish, even though it really doesn't even have much to do with an actual barbecue. The sauce us really worth it, however.
