Enjoyed this treat for the first time when I happened upon "Danny's Pub" near the Fox Valley Shopping Mall in Aurora, Ill. at lunch time, while working toward my second retirement, 7 or 8 years ago. It wasn't a Beer Stop -- It was a Shrimp Stop.

From that first sampling I was hooked and made many stops at "Danny's". Never did manage to beg, barter or borrow the recipe from those folks.

Next best thing -- Discern the tastes and attempt to duplicate it.

This comes close and is one of my favorite sauces for Breaded Shrimp and Hot Wings.

How to Make Buffalo Shrimp


  1. As with most things I have to try to take a good thing and try to make it better. Wouldn't know how to survive, if I couldn't put a personal touch to things. So this is what I do to Franks Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, to make it my own.
  2. In microwave proof bowl combine the sauce ingredients and nuke on high for 3 minutes. It will sput and spatter so cover with a paper towel. After 3 minutes remove and mix well and combine. If needed nuke an additional 2 or 3 minutes, and again stir well. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. I make additional and store in a mason jar in fridge for up to two weeks
  3. Fry Breaded Shrimp in 1/4 inch oil in fry pan, or use deep fryer. Don't over fry or brown. Pour on warm sauce and combine well. Serve.
  4. A salad of greens or cottage cheese and sliced tomatoes along with a bread or roll of choice are fine accompaniments to Buffalo Shrimp. Fried Onion Rings would also work well. As would a little MGD or Beck's to quench the thirst and ease the fire.
