    Jenna, Your sheet pan shrimp is similar to a SL recipe for BBQ shrimp that we love! The best part is the bread dunking! Everyone loves it as long as you have some wet naps and a roll of paper towels πŸ™‚

  3. Jenna, I can just smell the goodness! In true Southern fashion, sopping is the only way to do it correctly! It is pouring rain already this morning, and then the cold air arrives! Happy Tuesday!

  4. This one is already on the printer! Oh, it will be a wonderful recipe for a really casual, dig-in, kind of gathering with good friends who don’t mind greasy fingers! I love it — thank you!

    Oh yeah, this suits us to a T. I can taste the bread dipped in the juices which is my favorite part. I need to get right to the fish market for some good fresh Gulf shrimp.

    I’m showing this recipe to Trip because it looks much easier than my BBQ shrimp recipe. Do you buy your shrimp at Sexton’s when you’re in Birmingham? Thanks, Jenna.

    • Actually, we’ve only made this at the beach, but I think Sextons or Whole Foods would be my choice~ this is stupid easy, a little messy to eat but that’s what makes it fun!
