Bubba Gump Shrimp may have been famous from a movie. Life is like a box of chocolates, but no one makes shrimp like Bubba Gumps. Spicy, filling and just wonderful. Had this down in New Orleans at Bubba Gump’s.
Here is a recipe that was inspired by a movie. If you live in the South of the United States you know what Barbeque Shrimp is, and how wonderful it tastes. Barbeque shrimp isn’t shrimp that was placed on a grill, but it is shrimp cooked in a wonderful buttery garlic sauce. I believe if you have been to New Orleans Pascale Manales is the restaurant that may have started this way of cooking shrimp. Here is a great recipe to try if you want some of that famous sauce. My tip to you, serve with some French bread or some buttered rice, you won’t want to miss a drop of this sauce.
Thanks to Kachurr50 for sharing this shrimp recipe.
