Flip through the book and savor the sound of shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, shrimp cocktail and all sorts of ways to cook and eat shrimp. This has 75 recipes, so there's bound to be some that suit your tastes.

You can bake it: Millionaire Stuffed Shrimp, Alabama-Style Shrimp Bake, Bubba's Beer-Broiled Shrimp, Shrimp Pizza Wedges, etc.

You can barbecue it: Lime-Barbecued Shrimp, Grilled Orange Shrimp Salad, and a couple of others.

You can boil it: Spicy Shrimp Dip, Real Smooth Shrimp Butter, Mighty Nice Shrimp Cheese Ball, Lt. Dan's Lemon Shrimp, Smiley Face Shrimp, Oriental Shrimp Salad, Shrimp and Cheese Omelet, and plenty more.

You can fry it: Crispy Sweet-and-Sour Shrimp, Coconut Fried Shrimp, Walnut Fried Shrimp, Mama Blue's Shrimp Patties, and a few others.

You can saute it: Shrimp Hot Brown, New Year's Steak 'n' Shrimp, Shrimp Flambe (with White Wine Sauce and Hollandaise Sauce!), Shrimp and Refried Rice, Sizzlin' Szechuan Shrimp, etc.

Goes real good with: Old-Fashioned Sweet Coleslaw, Bubba's Cocktail Sauce, Delta Dunkin' Sauce, Cracklin' Cornbread, Southern Hush Puppies, and one or two other things.

The recipes are simple and easy.

Great book, I use it all the time. I've used ever reciepe at least twice. I was just disappointed because a friend of mine has a cookbook she order from the movie that has a shrimp dip w/spinach in it. I bought the movie but I didn't have an order form in my video cassette box. But if you like shrimp every way you can think of then this is the book for you.

We found this book at our local library and our teenage son immediately "locked on" to it. He loves Bubba Gump as well as the recipes in this book. He has taken such an interest in it that he has learned to cook from it. His favorite recipi is "Bubba's Beer-Batter Shrimp." He prepares it in a fondue pot and our entire family reaps the benifits. My husband and I prefer the "Shrimp and Feta Vermicelli." It adds a little adventure to cooking with shrimp. The variety of recipes in the book make it a "sure thing" for shrimp lovers.

If you like seafood, if you LOVE shrimp, this is the cookbook for you. Every recipe in here is scruptious, delicious, mouth watering. And the reference to the movie are heartwarming. A wonderful gift, a prized possession

I bought this book for my Dad after we had a terrific experience at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant in Charleston, SC. My Dad is very ill and on oxygen, but the trip to the restaurant really perked him up. He loved the dish he had there, and the chef was kind enough to come out of the kitchen and tell Dad how to cook it! Although the book doesn't have that specific recipe, it has dozens of others just as good.

I gave this book as a gift and it was the best gift I have ever given. The recipient was overjoyed and we plan to try every recipe in the book. We did not read a bad recipe in the entire book. The quotes are fun and make the cookbook even more delightful.

My son bought this book years ago and I used several recipes from it. I was able to find it again, bought it and now I'm eating every wonderful shrimp recipe worth eating. Well done, Amazon, for connecting me to Bubba!
