No need to fire up the grill. This classic Southern Louisiana dish has nothing to do with BBQ! This luscious dish can be cooked stovetop or in the oven. We prefer the oven because the shrimp linger a little longer in the sauce. And it’s all about the sauce! Our NOLA Pepper is the perfect player for this ensemble of lemon, butter and Worcestershire. Be sure there’s lots of crusty bread close by. Dipping into the sauce is what makes this dish!
