Spicy New Orleans Shrimp
I wanted to throw this out there with New Years coming up and this is perfect for parties and even around the house. It's very simple to make and you can do it in the oven, on a grill, wherever. We had it last night for the first time as it didn't disappoint. In fact, the Mrs is not a shrimp fan. She said, "Hands down this is the best shrimp you've ever made. Put this on the favorites list!"

So, the details. I used a pound of large, raw shrimp and peeled them.

In the CI, mix:

1 lb white tiger shrimp
2 tbsp butter unsalted
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sweet chili sauce (I used a garlic chili sauce)
1 tbsp Worcestershire
1 tsp chili powder (I used Smitty's)
1 tsp liquid smoke (did not use)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp sriracha hot sauce or tabasco
4 cloves garlic minced
juice from 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp parsley chopped

I put the CI on the stove at low to melt the butter and mix it all up:

Once done, take it off the heat and let it cool down. Once cool, throw the shrimp in and mix it up. Cover it with foil and throw in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or in my case, 4 hours.

When you're ready to eat, remove the foil, throw it in the oven or grill, whatever at 400 for 10 minutes or so. That's all there is to it.

Also, it's nice to have some French bread or a baguette sliced so you can scoop up the sauce:

It's fantastic and it went very fast.

Thanks for looking and Happy New Year.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the points!

I posted this as more of an appetizer and it works really well in that regard. Next time, I'm going to use it with Fried Rice and/or a stir fry :whistle:.

Brian, it's not as hot as you think it is. They have some heat but it doesn't over power the shrimp.

Dipping the bread in the pan is just as important as the shrimp IMHO. It's so good.

Thanks Pete...I'll be trying a version of this NYE...

My only concern is taking my CI pan right from the fridge into a 400 degree oven...

I actually never got around to cooking mine last night...Got the shrimp in the butter marinade in a bowl in the fridge...I guess I'll have me some spicy shrimp for lunch today :thumb:

Thanks again for all the nice comments and points.

Did another batch and added it all to some fried rice I cooked up. It works well.

SMOKE FREAK 01-06-2018 01:29 PM

I finally got mine cooked on Tuesday :whistle:
It sat in the marinade for over 48 hours...Was just a little afraid of the lemon juice cooking the shrimp to mush or something but it didn't...Turned out great...Thanks Pete...

Thanks for posting and sharing this recipe Pete. I made this tonight with a few mods to the recipe, cut back on the on the chili powder and hot sauce because wife unit was going to partake. I put the shrimp on top of some cheesy grits and added some roasted carrots. It turned out fantastic. Will make again for sure. And yes some bread to soak of the leftover sauce. :thumb:
