Shrimp isn't grilled or in traditional BBQ sauce, but that's what they call it in New Orleans and it is SOOO good!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These shrimp are a classic New Orleans tradition and they're fantastic. The buttery sauce is full of spices. It's slightly tangy from the fresh lemons infused in the baking process. Soaking up the flavorful sauce with French bread is so tasty. Easy to make, the shrimp are baked to perfection. This shrimp recipe does not disappoint. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
