Recipes from AgriMissouri

If you are like me and like to incorporate Missouri products within your cooking you need to log on to the AgriMissouri site. The site is full of recipes, Missouri made products and the locations of restaurants using local foods across the state.

This is a recipe I tried recently and really enjoyed. (You can purchase Grandma's Cool & Zesty Dressing in many grocery stores.)

Jennifer’s “Scandalous” Baked Shrimp
4-5 pounds raw, large shrimp (16-20 count)
2 cups real butter
1 tablespoon of fresh, cracked pepper
4 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1 14 oz bottle of Grandma’s Cool & Zesty Dressing
1-2 loaves of crusty French bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place shrimp in a large roasting pan. Melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in pepper, garlic, lemon juice and Grandma’s Cool & Zesty Original Dressing. Pour this mixture over the shrimp and bake, covered for 30-45 minutes.Stir every 15-20 minutes. To serve, ladle shrimp and sauce into large, individual bowls. Serve with French bread to dip into “zesty” sauce.This recipe serves approximately eight people.

To serve four, simply use half of the ingredients.
