We love Sriracha's heat, which is warm, lasting, and assertive without being overbearing. The oil and sugar give the marinade some viscosity so it doesn't just season the shrimp but clings to it.Click here to see the Ultimate Guide to Buying Shrimp

Shrimp scampi is one of those dishes that is full of flavors, but still lets the flavors of the shrimp shine as the highlight of the dish. Shrimp seem to be a big staple of all fish and at the Rusty Scupper, they put a slightly different spin on the scampi in that they incorporate tomato coulis and capers.

Shrimp Étouffée
Etouffée means "smothered," as any fan of Cajun cooking knows, and Joshua Marks didn't skip any of the classic vegetables in the sauce that smothered his shrimp. This is a finely honed version of the traditional preparation, and even though a stick of butter may seem generous for a pound of shrimp… well, the dish would miss it if you used less. To get the roux to a medium golden color and cook it properly, you need this volume of butter and flour. And it's true to the spirit of generations of generous, open-handed Cajun cooks, who aren't known for starting a dish with merely a tablespoon or two of butter! Once the wine and stock have gone in, the sauce simmers until it's thick and smooth. At this point, your étouffée is pretty much ready, so don't add the shrimp until the rice is cooked and your guests are seated at the table. It doesn't take long to smother the shrimp once they go in. Click here to see Cook Like a MasterChef at Home.

Created by New York City's Kamal Rose and former NFL player Bill Ard, this shrimp recipe is a true representation of its New Orleans surroundings. A dirty rice filled with chicken liver, kidney beans, and aromatics makes it stand out from most versions of the Southern specialty.
