All this talk about Mardi Gras food has me daydreaming about the shrimp boils we have in Arkansas. Sure, we eat some crayfish when we can, but we are more likely to have a shrimp boil than one with mud bugs.
What if I told you that you could have the taste of a shrimp boil in the convenience of a sheet pan with just a small prep? I think I just heard you say, “Heck yeah!” This is it.
