New Orleans BBQ Shrimp Recipe – My Daughter Haley’story!
New Orleans BBQ Shrimp recipe has given me my southern cooking reputation. All of my friends have been begging me to make them southern recipes and I want to make a healthy barbecue shrimp recipe also. I love to cook but I am limited so I turn to my mom’s healthy easy recipes. Tonight, in honor of us all finishing our last classes, I decided I would make my southern favorite, New Orleans BBQ Shrimp recipe. Actually, if you want a Louisiana first kitchen cookbook, Gulf Coast Favorites has been great for my college recipes. I also like her recipe for BBQ Shrimp Tacos.
Yes!! My Mom’s BBQ Shrimp Recipe is MY Last Minute Easy Shrimp Dinner
And, my last class in college happened to be my swing and Latin dance recital! I am sure you can imagine how pleased my mother has been with my second semester senior class choices! I spent most of the early evening at my recital, so I chose to make this BBQ shrimp recipe because it is full of flavor and only takes minutes to prepare! If you have ever been to New Orleans, most likely you have had Barbecue Shrimp. I love my New Orleans BBQ Shrimp recipe because it is the easiest Barbecue shrimp recipe ever!! Anyone you make this for will thing you spent well over an hour in the kitchen! Oh yes, make sure you have French bread or my Mom’s Pull Apart Bread to dip in the scrumptious sauce and I always make angel hair pasta.
My Favorite New Orleans BBQ Shrimp Recipe-remember to pick up French bread!!!
This Louisiana cookbook wouldn’t be complete without a New Orleans barbecue shrimp recipe. I played around in the kitchen to insure the recipe included tons of sauce to dip the French bread, as that is the best part. Serve with French bread and angel hair pasta.
You’ll love the simplicity of the recipe and that its actually one of my healthy easy recipes on my healthy food blog. Most BBQ Shrimp recipes have sticks of butter. This healthy Barbecue Shrimp recipe packs the best flavor without all the bad stuff for you. So, enjoy!
