Longhorn's Wild West Shrimp w/Prairie Dust

Victoria Ross


My daughter Lexi and I love going to Longhorn Steakhouse as a special treat. We end up ordering two orders of this because we love it soooo much. This is not my recipe but a copycat. I am making a cookbook for my kids and it wouldn't be complete without this recipe! Love you Lexi and I hope everytime you make this you think of me and our special dinners!
