Bourbon BBQ Shrimp

BBQ-Shrimp.jpg
  • 1 pound medium to large shrimp, unpeeled

  • 3/4 cup Bourbon BBQ sauce (more or less, as desired)

  1. Preheat oven to 350º

  2. Place shrimp in a large bowl; add sauce and toss thoroughly

  3. Pour into a pan and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring once​​​​.

TIP: If you have a covered pan/dish, such as a dutch oven, you can use peeled shrimp for this recipe. The shell helps maintain the moisture and keeps the shrimp from drying out, which is the same thing a covered dish will do. Also, I've given you the easiest/least attention-intensive method for cooking this dish. By all means though you can choose other ways, such as sauté them in a skillet and then mix with the sauce, skewer them and cook on a grill, and other methods I'm sure. Find what you love best and go for it!

Some serving ideas for you include:

  • Spoon them on top of a bed of rice (your choice of type and flavor) and top with scallions

  • Use as a filler for soft tacos or quesadillas and top with your favorite accompaniments

  • Serve in a bowl with french bread to help sop up the juices

  • Create a salad with the shrimp, grilled corn, black beans, avocado, diced tomatoes, and tortilla strips.
