Cooking tips and tricks

  • Don’t let the name fool you - this is not a traditional BBQ dish. It is a deeply rooted French-Creole dish with lots of spice and flavor. The recipe calls for lots of fresh flavors and authentic spices to waken your taste buds.

  • Choosing the right shrimp you use is key for making this dish. Bigger shrimp allow for more fish in your dish and more surface area for the sauce to cover. There are also a few tips to keep your shrimp juicy and crunchy. Keep the tails on while you cook so they do not dry out, and if you can find shrimp with heads on, these will bring more flavor and richness to your sauce. 

  • As southern cooking is known to be on the spicier side, you can increase the amount of cayenne pepper if you prefer an extra kick. Cayenne pepper has a fiery spice that differs from red pepper flakes, but it also is known to enhance flavors of a dish when heated. 

  • This dish cooks fast! With cooking time under 30 minutes, this meal is a great option for a quick weeknight dinner or easy appetizer for a gathering with friends and family.

     

    What to serve with New Orleans style BBQ shrimp?

This not only helps you to enjoy every last drop that you cooked, but the addition of break makes this a complete meal that will leave you feeling satisfied.
    • Who doesn’t love a cold beer to wash down a spicy meal? These shrimp pair nicely with a light, frosty beer for a complete southern experience. 

    What shrimp work best in this dish?

    Choose as large of shrimp as possible when cooking this dish as they will not dry out as fast and will absorb more of the sauce. It is your choice on whether to keep the tails and shells on the shrimp, but doing so will prevent the shrimp from drying out. Also, if possible use shrimp with the heads still on as the fatty heads will enrich the sauce’s flavor.
