I love these Baked Shrimp in Spicy Smoke Sauce. Besides being easy to make (just dunk the thawed shrimp in Spicy Smoke Sauce and bake), they are super flavorful. Smoke flavors from the liquid smoke and the earthy smoked paprika. A little kick of heat from the Sriracha and cayenne.
We almost always have some of this sauce in the fridge, so it’s easy to make up some of these Baked Shrimp in Spicy Smoke Sauce on a weeknight. But if you don’t already have some sauce made, it’s really quick to pull it together, just takes a couple minutes to measure out all the ingredients and heat them up on the stove.
Serve these Baked Shrimp in Spicy Smoke Sauce over rice with some veggies for an easy weeknight meal. And be sure to have a nice piece of crusty bread to soak up that smokey sauce.
We also like to serve these shrimp on the side when we make Dan’s World Famous Gumbo. They make a great add in for the gumbo! When we do this, we place the baked shrimp in a chafing dish. If you want to serve the shrimp in a chafing dish, undercook them a little as they will continue to cook in the chafing dish, and pour all the liquid and the shrimp into the dish, then place them over the pan of water. This will help to keep the shrimp from drying out. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the shrimp out of the liquid, or have a big spoon to scoop up the sauce along with the shrimp.
