Healthy Barbeque Shrimp Recipe

June 21, 2019

My daughter, Haley, is known for my lighter version of New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp recipe (and easy). In fact, this delicious, simple shrimp recipe gave her quite the southern cooking reputation.

She said, “All of my friends have been begging me to make them southern recipes and I always show off with my mom’s healthy barbecue shrimp recipe. I love to cook and turn to my mom’s healthy easy recipes.

I hope you enjoy my southern favorite New Orleans Style Barbeque Shrimp recipe.
