We’re always looking for delicious appetizers to serve when we have friends and family over for dinner. At Don’s Seafood Hut in Lafayette, LA, they have an amazing appetizer that takes a new twist on fried shrimp. Zydeco Shrimp is perfectly battered and fried Louisiana gulf shrimp drizzled or dipped in Hot Pepper Jelly for a delicious bite of fresh seafood with a twist.
Zydeco Shrimp is easy to make. You simply season, batter, and fry the shrimp in small batches for about 2 – 3 minutes until golden brown. And then drizzle the hot pepper jelly either over the shrimp or use it as a dipping sauce.
If you prefer, you can buy the pepper jelly already made. We personally like the Tabasco brand, which can be bought in either spicy or mild.
