After the success of the deliciously heavenly Honey Bourbon Chicken Wings, my friend Wes and I decided we needed to keep trying more bourbon recipes. We like bourbon. We REALLY like Four Roses Bourbon. If we do recipes with bourbon in them, it gives us a logical excuse to try a drink or two. Or three.
Whatever it takes.
So we took to the grill with another app in mind: Shrimp. We also pulled out some other big guns: Butter and heavy whipping cream. We weren’t messing around.
To top it all off, we did something I’ve never done before – we lit food on fire. It was SO COOL. Poured the bourbon over the shrimp and took a lighter to it – POOF – flames. It was probably the most fun I’ve had at a grill in years. Maybe ever. Of course it helps that the company I kept was a hilarious and creative guy like Wes. It also helped that we sampled the Four Roses Bourbon a couple times.
You know, just in case. Of something.
Anyway, this appetizer is a must next time you light your grill. Creamy, tasty, a little smoke – and it’s fast and fun. It’s recipes like this that remind me why I fell in love with cooking – especially outside. Try it soon and enjoy this amazing Creamy Bourbon Grilled Shrimp with some friends – but only if you’re into things like totally blowing your friends away with flavor and leaving them begging for more.
