This post is part of our Jay D series featuring recipes and products from Chef, #FoodNetworkStar Finalist and Creator of Jay D's Louisiana Barbecue Sauce, Jay Ducote.
In Louisiana, we're blessed with an abundance of good company, good times and good seafood -- often at the same time. So when White Shrimp season rolls around, we know it's our chance to make one of our favorite Louisiana seafood dishes, Barbecue Shrimp, invite a few friends over and enjoy the bounty!
1 lb large head-on shrimp, marinated (see recipe below)
½ cup BBQ butter, divided (see recipe below)
½ cup heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp Jay D's Barbecue Rub
1 loaf French bread
¼ cup green onion, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the French bread into 1/2" crostinis and spread 1 tsp of the BBQ butter. Place crostinis on a sheet pan and bake for 5-7 minutes until slices are golden brown. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, and add marinated shrimp to cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip the shrimp and add the cream. Reduce cream by half and add the remaining BBQ butter and the Jay D's Barbecue Rub. Continue to cook the shrimp and stir in the butter until the sauce reaches a creamy consistency. Plate the shrimp on a platter and garnish with green onions and crostinis.
