Firecracker Shrimp

If you don’t yet know the wonder that is Pioneer Woman, you need to hightail it over to her blog immediately and check it out! Not only is she a fantastic writer and photographer, but her recipes are just to die for.

Case in point: Firecracker Shrimp. This was such a hit that we made it twice in the span of four days. And I know we’ll make it again! Definitely take care to control the amount of spice you prefer ’cause this one can really knock your taste buds out! Yum!
