It’s almost Mardi Gras time and what better way to start celebrating then with a spicy shrimp dish!
My Spicy Cajun Mardi Gras Shrimp are beyond delicious.
When you mix butter, spices, more butter, lemon and shrimp, it’s about to be a party in your mouth.
First, we need shrimp!
The bigger the better is what I always say when it comes to shrimp.
These are “large” but I beg to differ, they look medium to me.
Go with extra large shrimp if possible.
Next, slice up some smoked sausage.
If you have the Louisiana brand of smoked sausage available then you’re one lucky person.
I was out of Louisiana sausage so I went with my local store brand of smoked sausage.
I will be restocking up on my Louisiana sausage when my mother heads to Louisiana at the end of the month.
Lastly, all you do is make up a sauce of hot sauce, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, Worcestershire, butter, olive oil, and loads of spices.
Mix everything together and toss the shrimp and sausage in the sauce.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes and that’s all folks!
Now it’s time for the good part!
Serve with a side of crusty bread and loads of fresh sliced lemon and dip baby dip.
The sauce, that’s all the words I have, the sauce is where it’s at!
