Barbecue Shrimp Chili


Miz Helen’s Country Cottage

Please vote for Barbecue Shrimp Chili!!

Shrimp and  lemons might not be the first ingredients that pop into your mind when you think of a great bowl of chili, but they should be. After your first taste of this spicy seafood chili, you will be picturing the oceans full of shrimp wearing cowboy hats, and mermaids wrapped in bandanas, with a boot on their tails. No, I swear, there are not any hallucinogens in the recipe. The taste just excites your senses, and makes you conjure up whimsical tales.

My first bites of this yummy dish had me asking a party hostess to share the recipe. She graciously did so, and I have been whipping this up ever since. I serve it over brown rice, but white is equally good.

 
Barbecue Shrimp Chili

1 1/2 lbs. medium shrimp, peeled, and cleaned
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 can mild chili beans
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 lemon, sliced very thin
 

In a large, heavy pot, melt the butter and oil. Cook the garlic until it is soft.
Add shrimp and cook until pink.
Add beans, barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, liquid smoke, red pepper flakes, pepper, and chili powder.
Simmer for 10 minutes. Add parsley and lemon slices. Continue to simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. 
Serve chili over white, or brown rice.
Serves 4-6

  2. You are the cooking champion, Lisa. What a yummy sounding dish.

    I am up to my eyeballs in trying to figure out what is going on with Blogger.

    I signed in, and it told me I didn't have a profile. So, I signed in again, and it said it. Not sure what that was about. It also told me I didn't have a blog so when I backed out, there was my blog. WEIRD. Do you think someone is trying to steal my blog? Makes you wonder!

    XO,

  3. This looks good and I don't even like shrimp that much. That shows what a good cook and food photographer you are! My dad loves shrimp and this looks like a recipe he would enjoy, so maybe some day I will make him some. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  20. I misread and thought you typed "mermaids wrapped in bananas." Then I read that there were no hallucinogens in the recipe and thought--no way...she's lying! Anywhooo.
