Buffalo Shrimp are quick and easy to make! They were the recipe of choice for this month’s Surprise Recipe Swap. I am excited to once again be participating in the Surprise Recipe Swap! If you have never heard of it, head on over to Hungry Little Girl and find out more. Heck, join in if you like! I would love to make one of your recipes! This month, my partner is Kristin from Chefinista.
While reading her about page, I learned she was a professional chef in the D.C. area and now is living in Virginia. What a small world this is. If you are a regular, you know I live in Fredericksburg, Va (if you are not a regular, I hope you will become one!) I will be getting in contact with her and hope to meet up some time! I had a good time reading Kirstin’s blog. Head on over and see what she and her husband are up to! I had a good time hanging out there.
The recipe I chose to share is her Buffalo Shrimp. I don’t know about you, but I love hot and spicy! This recipe seemed like it would be a perfect fit for my family!
I have never tried Fred’s Sauce and was glad to be able to find it easily. I am sure this recipe will find it’s way back to my kitchen often!
