Louisiana BBQ Shrimp

We always order Cajun shrimp. In our neighborhood there is always an amazing seafood boil a stone throw away. I wanted to branch out and try something a little different. The flavor of this sauce is unlike anything I’ve ever tried!

I made mountain bread in our cast iron skillet and could not wait to make something for dipping! The sauce is so rich and filled with garlic. I added sausage to add even more flavor.

The first time I made this sauce Patrick immediately came into the kitchen to figure out what I was making. The sautéed garlic and onion with the lemon butter is mouth watering.

Ingredients

1 pound of shrimp

Two links of bratwurst or sausage of your choice

1 tbsp of smoked paprika

1 tsp of garlic powder

3 cloves of chopped garlic

Zest from one lemon

Juice from two lemons

3 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp of olive oil
