Cajun Shrimp in Oyster Shells

Think shrimp cocktail. Cooked and served in oyster shells, these are quite possibly the perfect grilled (or baked) appetizer. The sauce is so much better, so much more delicious that stuff you get in a bottle.

  • Fire up your grill for medium heat direct cooking. Or, preheat your oven to 350 F.
  • Place the tomato sauce, pepper flake, steak sauce, oil, garlic and onion into a blender and process until smooth.
  • Divide sauce between shells. You might have a bit leftover, or not, depending on how much sauce you want in each shell.
  • Add the shrimp. Transfer to the grill or oven and cook for 15 minutes or until the shrimp have turned pink and translucent.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with green onions before serving.
