Buffalo Grilled Shrimp with Blue Cheese Dip

Buffalo Grilled Shrimp with Blue Cheese Dip is a spicy, savory, oh my god that is good kind of dish.  Ready in less than 15 minutes makes it the perfect weeknight dinner, or the OMG I have guests coming over appetizer.

Buffalo Grilled Shrimp with Blue Cheese Dip is a spicy, savory, recipe ready in under 15 minutes | ahealthylifeforme.com My garden is in full swing.

Well full swing means that their are teeny tiny little sprouts popping out of the ground, but hey ya’ gotta start somewhere.  One of the first things I can always depend on producing for me early is my herbs.  My parsley, cilantro and basil have all got a good start.

Well, that was until I got an invader.  Something small and fast has been sneaking into the garden and nibbling away.  Now how do I know that it is small and fast you ask?

Because my garden has a fence around the perimeter with chicken wire running the lower portion in hopes to keep out said small nibbling creatures.  Now h0w do I know it is fast.. well because the two dogs that live here would of certainly caught said small fast creature if it wasn’t so unbelievably fast.  Right… right!

Buffalo Grilled Shrimp with Blue Cheese Dip is a spicy, savory, recipe ready in under 15 minutes | ahealthylifeforme.comEnough about my garden woes, and on to this rocking good recipe.

This is one of my favorite “oh crap what am I gonna make for dinner” recipes.  I always try to keep some frozen shrimp on hand and of course everyone should always have butter and Franks hot sauce on hand.

To thaw frozen shrimp, just toss it into a colander and run water for a few minutes until your shrimp thaw.  Yep it is that easy.

This is also a great dish to serve while tailgating or as an appetizer.

I hope you give this a try, you won’t be disappointed and neither will family or friends.

    This is one of those recipes where you go “why didn’t I think of that?!” My daughter loves shrimp (and used to love spice) so I am really curious to see how she would take this recipe. Only one way to find out!
