Sriracha Buffalo Shrimp {recipe}

My Giants! Big Blue! NEW YORK! They had a win on Sunday and needless to say I was and continue to be ecstatic! I am a football fan, I’ve cultivated a love for the Giants since 2011 and after the won the Superbowl in 2012 I never looked back. My son loves the Giants, I have sleepwear, glassware, clothing, all for the Giants! You have to understand I live in Falcons country and people here are relentless about the Dirty Birds. As a matter of fact, the other day my FedEx guy stopped by and as he delivered a package, he had some smart words to share with me about being a Giants fan. However despite living in Atlanta, I can’t be swayed. I am winning as a Giants fan and love them when they are up and down. Now this Sunday the Giants won and I did too because I enjoyed my Sriracha buffalo shrimp as I watched the game.

I did a twist on my usual Buffalo shrimp recipe because I really like the flavor of Sriracha and there was literally a party in my mouth! I baked my shrimp instead of frying. This cuts down on calories but absolutely does not cut down on taste. I did however use regular butter, a little bit of fat never hurt anyone! As I’ve said many times, I believe in everything in moderation and I had butter on hand, didn’t use much and it really added to the taste of my sauce. This recipe is so good, I could eat it daily and since preparation from start to finish takes less than 30 minutes, I literally could make this effortless every day! I served my shrimp on a salad but they are great all on their own too!
