Is there such a thing as too much shrimp? Because I surely don’t think so.

If you dine out at Bubba Gump Shrimp you’ll find out just how many different ways you can enjoy shrimp.
Last month, while in Miami for the Blogalicious conference we made our way to Bubba Gumps Shrimp for the old dude’s birthday dinner.
Being the seafood lover that he is, when I asked him where he wanted to go he took to Yelp searching for seafood.
The Forest Gump lover in both of us couldn’t pass at the chance to go to Bubba’s when it came up on the list of places in the area.
I loved the theme of the restaurant being completely around the movie. And speaking of the movie it played on repeat throughout the restaurant.
The menu consisted of shrimp made in every way that you could ever want.
We got started with the seafood hush pups. A cross between like a crab cake and a hush puppie. Two of my absolute favorites.
For my entree, I was torn between the Shrimp Mac n’ Cheese (off the appetizer menu), Net Catch (like a shrimp broil) and the I’m Stuffed Shrimp (shrimp stuffed with crab meat). I love crab and so I ended up settling on the latter.
Hubs went with the Bourbon Street Cobia since he had never had, let alone heard of, that kind of fish. And of course, it was paired with shrimp.
My visit to Bubba Gumps was certainly a highlight of my time in Miami.
Today, I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite shrimp recipes. Since I got you all worked up and ready for shrimp.
It’s a quick and easy meal too. One of my go-to meals when I need to whip up something fast.
My sheet pan Shrimp Broil.
You cut up your sausage and potatoes.
Par-boil the potatoes and the corn.
Mix everything together and throw it in a heated oven.
