ASK LEIGH


Question: I bought a bag of frozen shrimp the other day at Brookshire’s. Do you have any suggestions besides boiling the shrimp and eating with cocktail sauce?

Answer: This is perfect timing because I just spent the day in Mabank at the new Brookshire’s store grilling shrimp all day for the Grand Opening! The customers LOVED this recipe and it’s super easy to prepare. If you don’t have a grill, don’t worry…it works just wonderfully in a hot skillet too!

The grapefruit juice gives the shrimp and sauce a wonderful citrusy flavor, but it’s not too strong at all. This recipe is was in our November Celebrate Cooking magazine, and it’s one I will make again for sure!
