Shrimp at Razzoo’s: 5 Ways to Enjoy the Fruit of the Sea

In the words of the wise Bubba Blue in Forrest Gump…


“Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, bake it, sauté it. There’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fired. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That – that’s about it.”


While Razzoo’s doesn’t have quite this many options when it comes to shrimp – err the fruit of the sea  - we do have quite a few delicious ways to enjoy this seafood favorite. If you get a hankering for some fresh Gulf shrimp, here are a few ways you can enjoy it at Razzoo’s Cajun Café:


Fried Shrimp


Ahh – the ever popular Fried Shrimp at Razzoo’s never fails to satisfy! Get the Fried Shrimp Basket with beautifully butterflied fried shrimp and corn on the cob – or order it as a combo platter with fried catfish and fried crawfish tails. Need an appetizer idea? Get the bite-sized popcorn shrimp! Tasty morsels of shrimp goodness right there.


Shrimp en Brochette


If you want a little slice of Cajun heaven in your mouth, go for the Shrimp en Brochette! It’s succulent shrimp, wrapped in bacon and jalapeno, then served over dirty rice with a zesty dipping sauce. We love the explosion of flavors with each bite!


Shrimp Creole


One of our go-to Cajun comfort foods, the Shrimp Creole at Razzoo’s in Texas features juicy shrimp, tossed with our creole sauce, then mixed with dirty rice. It’s warm and satisfying, perfect for a rainy day – or any day.


Shrimp Salad Lettuce Wraps


We’ve added a new menu item, and it’s getting rave reviews! The Shrimp Salad Lettuce Wraps are light on the waistline and delicious. Our creamy shrimp salad with veggies is served with lettuce on the side, ready for you to scoop into the lettuce leaves and enjoy! This is the perfect light weekday lunch.


Seafood Gumbo


The “Cajun soup of life” as we like to call it, the Razzoo’s seafood gumbo features succulent shrimp, fish, oysters, okra, veggies, rice – all the good stuff! You can’t go wrong with this for lunch, dinner, or a late night snack with drinks.
