If you love seafood, the summer months mean one thing — it’s shrimp season! From Po’Boys to tacos, there are so many ways to enjoy your favorite shellfish from the comfort of your own kitchen. Here are five simply delicious recipes to try!
Imagine fresh shrimp coated in cornmeal and fried to a delicious, golden brown. Now imagine it served in a warm roll, topped with a juicy slice of tomato, crisp lettuce and creamy tartar sauce. Is your mouth watering for a Po’boy yet? It’s easy to make this classic Louisiana sandwich at home, and there is no better time than summer! Serve your Po’boys al fresco on the back patio with a twist of lemon, a dash of hot sauce, and a summer Sazerac — a signature New Orleans cocktail with moonshine whiskey from your bar cabinet.

Time to put another shrimp on the barbie! This Peruvian twist on grilled shrimp skewers features a zesty Aji Verde sauce made from fresh jalapeno and serrano peppers, along with sour cream, parsley and cilantro. Simply marinate freshly peeled and deveined shrimp and chill while you soak your wooden skewers. Then thread your shrimp onto the prepared skewers, grill over medium-high heat, and serve with your homemade sauce and some lime wedges.

Shrimp and Grits
Quintessentially southern, Shrimp and Grits is a mouthwatering addition to any summer menu. Southern Living recommends using wild gulf shrimp and smoked andouille sausage. Other flavors include fresh thyme, mushrooms, lemon juice, and a dry white from your wine storage cabinet. In addition to corn grits, you’ll also need to raid the refrigerator for butter, heavy cream, and Cheddar cheese — and don’t forget the hot sauce!

If you love garlic, Shrimp Scampi is probably a dinnertime favorite. But you don’t need to visit a fancy Italian restaurant to enjoy this dish. If you have fresh garlic, butter, olive oil, and dry white wine in your wine storage cabinet, you can easily make Shrimp Scampi at home this summer. If you like it hot, you’ll also want to grab some red pepper flakes from your spice drawer. Serve your Shrimp Scampi over pasta or with warm, crusty bread.
