So fast and easy to prepare, these shrimp are destined to be the hit of any barbeque. And, weather not permitting, they work great under the broiler, too.

These crispy shrimp are rolled in a coconut beer batter before frying. For dipping sauce, I use orange marmalade, mustard and horseradish mixed to taste.

One of our family's favorites, it's also great when made with crab meat instead of the shrimp.

The shrimp marinade and the sauce make the dish!

Keto Shrimp Scampi

Rating: 4.06 stars

This shrimp scampi is transformed into a keto meal by using shirataki noodles. I like to double the amount of crushed red chiles for an extra kick! This will make 3 lunch-sized portions or 2 dinner-sized portions. Grate some Parmesan cheese on top before serving, if desired.

Tasty Shrimp Tempura and Sake Dipping Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars

Delicious tempura shrimp made just like it is at our favorite restaurant. The dipping sauce is a wonderful complement to the mild taste of the shrimp.

Tangy Lemon-Garlic Shrimp

This simple shrimp dish can be used as a pre-meal snack or the appetizer course. It's easy and quick to make on the stovetop, especially when the lemon juice, zest, and garlic are measured ahead of time.

Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

Rating: 4.89 stars

I am going to give you my gumbo recipe. I learned to cook from my mother and grandmother who were born and raised in New Orleans and really knew how to cook. Most of the time, you could not get them to write down their recipes because they used a 'pinch' of this and 'just enough of that' and 'two fingers of water,' and so on. This recipe is a combination of both of their recipes which I have added to over the years. Serve over hot cooked rice. The gumbo can be frozen or refrigerated and many people like it better the next day. Bon appetit!

Coconut shrimp come out great in the air fryer, and are served with a simple spicy honey-lime dip.
