Super Easy Firecracker Shrimp

Raven Higheagle


Our cabin in Arizona, has two rooms and a bathroom that really leaves a lot to be desired. When I cook The oven and stove will heat up the whole thing. So I have to cook quick meals or grill. Firecracker shrimp is one of my quick meals without too much heat to the cabin. Because we work long hours at the bars, it's pretty cool in the mountains at night which really helps with the heat the stove generates. Full of veggies and shrimp this is one dish that packs a lot of punch in flavor, and comes together in no time at all.
