NOLA Styled BBQ Shrimp Recipe


Created in my hometown New Orleans, Louisiana, BBQ Shrimp is a famous dish, and rightly so! This delicious dish was first discovered at a local Italian restaurant “Pascal’s Manale” in the mid-1950’s. Since then, hundreds of versions of this recipe have emerged. Most of New Orleans’ traditional restaurants have their own version of BBQ Shrimp on their menu.

This delicious New Orleans classic is mostly served as an appetizer but can easily be converted into an entree. Most may believe the shrimp are simply covered in a ton of BBQ sauce but that’s not nearly the case. BBQ Shrimp is prepared in a rich Worcestershire infused butter sauce. We serve this dish with the heads and tails on, so you’re going to have to get a little messy to authentically enjoy this dish!
