I also love going to the seafood market for fresh shrimp when I'm there. I haven't been to the beach this year, and I sure would like to go and enjoy some Alabama seafood. I have a couple of my shrimp dishes entered in the Southern Living photo contest, and you'll never guess what the prize is. A trip to Gulf Shores! It would be amazing to sink my toes in the sand right before I sink my teeth in some of that great Alabama seafood.
This shrimp dip and jambalaya are the two #ALseafood dishes I have entered in the contest. These are two favorite recipes, and they can be found in the recipe index at the top of this page. I have to add that our Arkansas rice mixes very well with that Alabama shrimp in the jambalaya. In order to qualify for that trip, my dishes could use a few votes over on the Southern Living page here. But even if you don't want to vote, head over there and see all the great seafood on display. I have to warn you though, it could tempt you to take a trip to Gulf Shores for some of the scrumptious local seafood.
