XT Spicy Barbecue Shrimp with Cooyon SUPERHOT

New Orleans BBQ Shrimp is a classic made popular by Chef Emeril Lagasse. It's a dish I grew up eating at home, and one that will always have my heart. 

Cooyon SuperHOT Hot Sauce is delicious on seafood, and it's a delicious addition to this New Orleans favorite. Since this hot sauce is incredibly spicy, adding it to a butter sauce for shrimp is a great way to tame it!
