Shrimp- It's in the Bag

Pat Duran


If you love shrimp and spices you will love this recipe- you all know who I am talking about-eat them out of the bag just like popcorn. I just omit the hot stuff in my bag and make it hot for the rest of the gang. You can make individual bags using your favorite spices and herbs- a great party idea- everyone make their own concoction!
Anyway I thought you would like this recipe to try before the grilling season is over. It is a recipe that makes your taste buds stand up and salute!

Ideas by me;
Recipe is from Kingsford Charcoal.

  • 1Rinse shrimp and place in a gallon size plastic freezer bag. Add the barbecue sauce and marinate, refrigerated, for one hour.

    Do not use a recycled bag in this recipe.
