Shrimp Jerky !!!! Q-View

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I got a wild hair and decided to try something new " Shrimp Jerky" !!   After peeling & deveining the jumbo shrimp, I ended up with 5 lbs of shrimp.  I seasoned and cured the shrimp the same as I would beef or venison. I used a spicey cajun seasoning and cure #1, put in ziplock bag in the fridge for 24 hrs. I hung the shrimp in the smoker using toothpicks.  It came out great !!!!!

Interesting.  I commend you for thinking outside the box.  How would you describe the flavor/texture?

More tender than beef - but still had a little "chew" to it.  Flavor was awesome !!
