Tangy BBQ Shrimp


Shrimp and steak sauce? Yes, please! The name might be confusing, but it works perfectly in this unbelievably delicious shrimp recipe, which showcases bold flavors in true Louisiana fashion. You’ll sauté shrimp in butter before simmering them with tomatoes, scallions, Creole seasoning (a spice blend made from peppers, oregano, garlic, and onion) and the steak sauce. It’s worth splurging on fancy bread to sop up every last bit of the sauce. Serve with icy cold beers and a soundtrack of big brass band to transport you to New Orleans while you eat.
