"A new take on an old favorite - shrimp instead of wings. Cooks up even faster than wings and tastes incredible. Taken from the Redbook magazine."

  1. These were pretty tasty and very easy. They are spicy, so watch out. The recipe for the blue cheese dip could be cut in half or even quartered and there would still be plenty for the amount of shrimp the recipe makes.
  2. We really enjoyed this recipe. I did make a couple of changes to suit our tastes. I couldn't resist adding a little minced garlic and freshly-ground pepper to the dip, and I also increased both the cayenne pepper and the hot sauce (Frank's RedHot), as I knew we would prefer more heat and spice. After I rinsed the shrimp and patted them dry, I just tossed them in a plastic bag along with the flour mixture, shaking until the shrimp were nicely coated. The skillet got a little dry while I was cooking the shrimp and they started losing their coating, so I added a little more olive oil. I think the olive oil, butter, and hot sauce need to be increased, and I also think it may work better to cook the shrimp in two batches. But it was certainly yummy as is. :) Thanks for posting!
  3. With a beautiful pic like that, I had to try it. Had it for New Year's Eve and it was delish. I forgot to get blue cheese so we used ranch dressing. Very good, very easy and quick.
  4. This was sooo good....took it to an annual Father's Day party and it was gone before everyone got there. I jazzed up the dressing and the flour...also added more hot sauce to the skillet. Next time, I will probably use the deep fryer and then dunk them in sauce made from butter and hot sauce. I had a hard time controlling the heat in the skillet so each batch was different.
  5. OMG, this was so delicious and easy! Also sliced up some chicken breast and cooked the same way to make sure everyone was filled up...served with some grilled fresh pineapple, rice and asparagus...the blue cheese dip is to die for! Thanks for posting!


I am lucky enough to be "living the good life". I have the most wonderful husband and two terrific teenage daughters. We reside in Central Pennsylvania where we have the luck of having four full seasons. Between my husband and myself, we have two full time jobs, three businesses and one part time job. We are very busy, but try to take it easy when we can and enjoy the wonderful life we have been blessed with. Future plans include moving to an inherited 45 acre farm in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This will occur if and when our DD's leave the nest. We love to travel and have enjoyed seeing all of North America and a large portion of the United States together. Since discovering Zaar, I have to say my life has become more flavorful! I have learned that it's easier than I thought to have an organized, well-planned and yet creative and fun kitchen! I love the features of Zaar, but especially enjoy the people. I have become addicted to the forums and now love taking photos of the food I prepare. I am officially a Zaar junky! I've also started taking pictures of most of the recipes I prepare...Here are some of the pics I've taken of dishes that are available at Zaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://w155.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w155.photobucket.com/albums/s305/jonesies/442caae0.pbw" height="360" width="480"><a href="http://i155.photobucket.com/redirect/album?action=slideshow&landing=/slideshows&type=3" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/slideshows/btn.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="http://s155.photobucket.com/albums/s305/jonesies/?action=view¤t=442caae0.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/slideshows/btn_viewallimages.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> I love most foods. My only dislikes are green peppers and coffee...weird, huh? Been trying to eat and cook healthier for the children and to help control DH's high cholesterol. I enjoy...no...CRAVE anything cheesy, salty and crunchy. Needless to say I dream about nachos in my sleep! <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/cheesesticker.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/L%5B1%5D.F-stickJPEG.jpg"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view&current=tish3.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish3.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
