I am looking for some traditional recipes for shrimp in Ireland.
Please add recipe or link to recipe.
The recipe must be Irish .. due to the fact that I am taking it to a St. Pat’s day party.
But I appreciate the other recipes, I just need Irish cuisine

    HEDLEY you are so right……When you cook shrimp you must use old bay seasoning….it gives your shrimp the best taste and of course splash everything with lemon.

    One jar of Alfredo sauce
    pack of Alfredo noodles
    red pepper (dash)
    Parmesan cheese

    cook all ingredients except pasta, until shrimp is tender then serve over cooked pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.


    Sautee onions and bellpepper and garlic in butter then add one table spoon of flower to the butter then stirr until flower starts to darken (not long) then add your shrimp and seasoning, then add one can of Cream of mushroom soup (or cream of shrimp) (or half of each) which ever sounds best to you it all works…you can’t mess this up…If it seems really thick you can add just a little water…you want it kind of thick but not to thick….let it all cook till shrimp is tender and serve over rice…I’m from the South and we call this etouffee


    season some flour, heat up some grease…mix together one egg, a little milk and seasonings…dip shrimp in egg then flour and fry 3 or 4 mins remove sprinkle a little more seasonings on it and serve with hushpuppies and fries….FRIED SHRIMP

    pimento,salt, pepper and cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.
    Place mixture in greased casserole. Cover with bread crumbs. Bake

    purchase some blackened seasoning and coat your shrimp….spray a pan with pam and throw the shrimp in…let the shrimp almost burn on each side..serve with a baked potatoe and rice a roni…

    or get some shrimp scampi sauce in a bottle already made and sautee your shrimp in it and serve with your favorite sides…
