This recipe for Creole Butter Shrimp was so buttery, flavorful, and delicious. We couldn’t stop popping these. I am addicted to all things New Orleans and this recipe made me feel like we were right back there! We made this and poured the shrimp and sauce over some white rice along with a side of sourdough bread. It made such a good meal. Beau has already been asking me when we are going to make it again. 🙂 We like to get the bag of uncooked tail on shrimp from Costco in the frozen section, they are really good and the shells and veins are already removed. So much easier!
Creole Butter Shrimp
- 32 large uncooked shrimp we like the bag of frozen tail-on shrimp that you can get at Costco
- Combine all the sauce ingredients in a medium size bowl and add the uncooked shrimp (leave the tail on). Cover the bowl and marinade for 1 hour in the fridge, then 1/2 hour at room temperature before cooking. Remove shrimp to a plate but don't discard the sauce!
- Pour sauce into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
- Grill shrimp over high heat about 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from grill and place in a serving bowl. Pour the butter sauce over the top. (Remove tails as you eat).
