First time I ever went to New Orleans I fell in love with the food. Most people when they think vacation they think activities, I think food. I start googling all the best little spots. I have to admit my family and friends are great because they let me pick every single place we eat. I think probably because they don’t feel like doing the research.
I had a bowl of New Orleans shrimp and I fell in love. I remember reading the ingredients on the menu so there was no excuse to not recreate it at home. They were absolutely delicious. Give these a try and serve it over white rice or spaghetti.

- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp granulated garlic
