New Orleans Barbecue Shrimp

Jolayne Cooper


I was looking for a great shrimp recipe and found this one that looked good. We tried it and love it. It has some spice to it, but you can adjust the heat. It has been my go-to shrimp recipe. I usually serve it with French bread to sop up the liquid from the dish. It goes well with rice too.
