Mama’s Notes:


  • I like to use peeled shrimp for this recipe, although shrimp in the shell will work too
  • I do not like deveining shrimp so for ease, I buy shrimp already deveined
  • Vegetable oil has less of a “taste” so I use veggie oil for this recipe, the main purpose of the oil is to allow the seasonings to coat the shrimp and stay on.
  • I LOVE this recipe with Old Bay seasoning, but any seasoning will do.
