Dons New Orleans BBQ Shrimp


1 pound raw shrimp. Shell on

3 slices bacon, diced

1 stick butter

1 TBS Dijon mustard

1 tsp Penzey’s Cajun spice mix, your favorite, or chili powder

1 tsp Penzey’s Tuscan Sunset seasoning

½ tsp Cholula hot sauce, or to taste

1 TBS Zatarains liquid shrimp & crab boil

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt & pepper to taste


Don’t know why but this is what the Cajun’s call BBQ shrimp! Whether you would call it BBQ or not it sure is yummy served with good hard crust bread for dipping in the sauce.


Thaw shrimp if frozen & wash in cold water.


Brown the diced bacon in an oven proof skillet, when almost done add the stick of butter until melted & bubbly. Turn to med low heat then add the rest of the ingredients except the garlic. Heat through & add the garlic just before you add the shrimp. Stir shrimp to coat & place in a preheated 350 deg oven for 20 minutes, stirring once halfway. Serve & enjoy. This is also good done on a smoker.


Note: a little oregano, basil, & thyme will work in place of the Tuscan Sunset seasoning.
