1. Crispy Southern fried shrimp
Battered and fried shrimp are a wonderfully moreish appetizer. It's no wonder they're sometimes compared to popcorn, another food people want more of. The recipe below seasons them just right so that they're full of flavor (and just the right amount of kick).
2. Southern shrimp and sausage jambalaya
Despite what many recipes would have you believe, a true jambalaya doesn't actually contain that much tomato. It gets its rich color from slowly cooking the sausage and the Holy Trinity: a combination of onion, bell pepper and garlic.
3. Southern shrimp and grits
Is there anything more evocative of the South than grits? The recipe below pairs the savory cornmeal base with a slightly spiced shrimp-and-sausage mixture – a classic recipe you'll love. Use smoked Southern andouille sausage to give this dish the best flavor.
4. Southern BBQ shrimp
Barbecue shrimp gets its name not from the use of a barbecue (of which there is none) but rather from the sauce in which these crustaceans are cooked. The recipe below features a hearty helping of butter, but the results are totally worth the calories.
5. Southern style shrimp salad
This shrimp salad takes on a Southern flair thanks to the tricked-out mayonnaise-based dressing. The recipe below features just the right combination of sour pickle, sweet ketchup and spicy Creole mustard to make this salad sing.
