This is a great shrimp appetizer recipe. I could have eaten a hundred of these shrimp. A riff on a Buffalo Chicken Wing recipe and it comes together in a snap. The shrimp are breaded in a cayenne and flour breading, sautéed in a Buffalo-style butter and hot wing sauce combo, then stand tall in blue cheese dressing. Served alongside a battalion of cool crunchy celery… this dish equals a delicious bite after bite of hot..crunch..cool..blue cheesy delight. Franks Hot Wing Sauce is the perfect choice for this.
Now let’s take a look at this great shrimp appetizer recipe.
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 dozen large shrimp shelled and deveined
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1-2 teaspoons of your favorite Hot Wing Sauce
- Blue Cheese Dressing for serving
In a shallow bowl, combine flour salt and cayenne pepper. Pat shrimp dry and toss in the flour mixture, coating well. In a large skillet heat oil, butter and 1 - 2 teaspoons hot sauce. Amount depends on how much heat and flavor you want. Add shrimp and cook about 4-5 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Pour a little of the sauce over the shrimp while browning. Place dollops of the blue cheese dressing on a platter. Stand a piece of shrimp in each dollop and serve with celery sticks.
Homemade is always best. Take a look at my Creamiest Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe.
