How to make Spicy Shrimp New Orleans Style

The spicy shrimp New Orleans style. A little heat, a little sweet and a whole lot of flavor! 



  • ¼ cup fresh parsley leaves
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup mustard
  • 2 green onions – finely chopped
  • 1 celery rib – finely chopped
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of salt – to taste
  • ¼ tsp tabasco sauce – to taste
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves
  • ½ cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup prepared horseradish
  • 2 tb ketchup – or to taste
  • Pinch of sugar – optional
  • 1 large garlic clove – minced
  • Sprinkle of black pepper – to taste
  • 3-3 ½ lbs large shrimp – cooked and peeled



  1. Add parsley, oil, vinegar, mustard, ketchup, horseradish, scallions, celery, garlic, paprika, sugar, Tabasco, salt, pepper to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until almost smooth with just a little texture – about 30 or 40 seconds. 
  2. With a spatula, scrape into a separate bowl that will be large enough to hold the shrimp. 
  3. Add the shrimp, stir well until all combined, refrigerate covered for 8-10 hours. 
  4. Serve over cooked rice for a warm meal or shredded iceberg lettuce for a cool dish. Pass additional marinade to spoon over shrimp. 


NOTE: when I make this dish to serve as a warm dish over cooked rice, I increase the marinade by half as my family likes to pour it on!
