View Full Version : Looking for shrimp recipe?
06-22-2000, 12:17 PM
I lived in Baton Rouge for several years and the way they cook shrimp is;
Boil a bag of Zatarains crab boil-it coms in a box and inside is a mesh bag o herbs and spice. Boil the bag for at least ten minute so that it flavors the water. Iusually add some lemon slices as well. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Real cajuns tear opent the spice bag and distribut it over the shrimp. Make a nice spicy cocktail sauce, peel and enjoy. I hope this was the spicy shrimp you were thinking of. Good Luck! http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/wink.gif

How about the Barbecue Shrimp recipe from Cooking Light? Darn I'm at work (taking a little cheater break) but I'm sure somebody has it...if not, I'll look tonite at home. I'm sure I've got it there.
I've got one recipe which is delicious but will probably make your arteries harden just reading the ingredients (if you want it, I'll post it) and a second also good recipe I got from Epicurious which as I recall is slightly less sinful. Both would meet your requirements. But, before I go that route, check out "cajun shrimp" under CL's recipe index. There's a recipe there (considerably different from either of mine-- definitely healthier!)
Deanna, stop following me!!

I think I'll help Deanna out!
The peels are left on the shrimp so they
can add flavor to the lush, buttery-peppery
Look for bottles of hot pepper sauce near
the ketchup and steak sauces in your
Dried bay leaves add a woodsy flavor to
dishes. Always remove bay leaves before
serving your dish.
To get rid of any garlic smell on your
hands, rub them with lemon and salt; then
wash as usual. Or to save time, substitute
1-1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic for
the 3 minced cloves.
When choosing shrimp, pick those with
firm shells; they should smell of salt water
(no strong fishy odor) and should be plump.
To store uncooked shrimp, rinse under cold
water and pat dry with paper towels. Cover
and keep in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
A baguette is French bread that's been
formed into a long, narrow loaf. It has a
crisp, brown crust and light, chewy interior
-- perfect for sopping up the sauce in this

Thanks to all of you for the recipes! I REALLY appreciate your input. http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/smile.gif
Does anyone have a recipe for "spicy shrimp"? This is the name I gave it! I have been to parties and it is served as an appetizer. I believe the shells are still on and the shrimp are in a spicy almost cajun hot sauce?
