My husband is the ultimate seafood lover, I on the other hand haven’t been so adventurous unfortunately. Being from Minnesota we have literally thousands upon thousands of lakes so I’m used to the freshwater fish that we catch around here. But I’ve ventured out and gotten wild with some ocean versions, like shrimp!

I know shrimp is really an easy and tasty dinner and so accessible to the masses. There are so many different recipes that you can use it in, but this Bourbon Shrimp has to be one of my favorite recipes of them all. It is easy, quick and delicious to say the least! And when I can say that a seafood recipe is delicious, then that is really saying something!

So this Bourbon Shrimp recipe like I said is super easy, it has a list of ingredients but you throw them all in one pan and let it get it’s glaze on! The flavors really do taste like your favorite food court version of the bourbon chicken. But I mean if it worked on chicken how could it not work on shrimp, and it so totally does.

We like to get takeout Chinese like a lot….I mean sometimes I’m ashamed on how much we get it. But Chinese food is one of our favorite types of food so I mean it’s a no brainer. But we have started making a lot of our favorite dishes at home these days!
