Summer and shrimp just go together. One recipe that I feel head over heels in love with was Jack Daniel’s Bar & Grill’s Abita & Cane Syrup Glazed Shrimp. Don’t let the ingredients throw you off. I love cane syrup, and leave it to L’Auberge Casino Resort’s award-winning chef Lyle Brossard to pair it with a little beer and shrimp for the perfect marriage of flavor. There’s even a little kick with a sprinkle of cayenne.  And if you have the right utensils, this recipe could easily be prepared outdoors on a hot grill with a skillet.
