For many people, no brunch isn’t complete without a Bloody Mary. But not everyone likes a Bloody Mary, but everyone will love this Bloody Mary Shrimp Pasta recipe. A good Bloody Mary has the perfect blend of spice, tomato, and vodka. This Bloody Mary Shrimp Pasta Recipe is a Bloody Mary you can eat, complete with vodka in the sauce.
Confession: I serve this because I hate Bloody Mary’s, I hate tomato juice, I hate everything about it especially the smell. Guaranteed – if I’m on an airplane and held captive in a middle seat someone on either side of me will order a Bloody Mary or tomato juice. It’s true. My husband didn’t believe me until he saw it happen repeatedly.
Anyway, this Bloody Mary Shrimp Pasta recipe is my Bloody Mary compromise – all the flavors of a Bloody Mary none of the yucky tomato juice.
I first had this dish at a little BBQ shack on the Homer, Alaska Spit when I split my time between Alaska and Florida, a cute little place with amazing BBQ, they are out of business now. It’s hard to survive on the Spit with a tourist season that only lasts 3 months and most of the businesses close Labor Day weekend.
They shared the recipe with me, so I could share it with you.
Hope you like it! Enjoy.
