Outback Steakhouse Buffalo Shrimp

Prep Time: 10 Minutes   Cook Time: 5-6 Minutes  Serving: 2-4

Do you sometimes want to try something new in your favorite restaurant? However, just at the moment you place the order, you decide to order the one that you had in the past because you crave it badly.

At the same time, in the back of your head, you tell yourself, "I will try the new dish next time." Then, when you go back the next time, the restaurant just changed their menu. So, you don't have any opportunity to try that "new" dish.

Does this sound familiar? This was exactly how it happened with this Outback Steakhouse buffalo shrimp side dish. That inspired me to create this recipe.


1 pound Shrimp (16/20 counts or whatever size is on sale; shelled and devined. The more count in a pound of shrimp; the smaller the size of the shrimp and longer it takes to shell them)
1 1/4 tablespoons Butter (divided)
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Buffalo wing sauce (I use Frank's Red Hot Wings Buffalo sauce. Add more or less sauce depending on the heat tolerance of your family and/or guests)
1 pinch of salt

  1. Preheat a big skilłet at medium high heat
  2. Add 1 tablespoon each of butter and extra virgin olive oil
  3. Single layer the shrimp on the skillet
  4. Add 1 pinch of salt
  5. Cook about 1-2 minutes on the first side or until the bottom side is pink
  6. Turn it over and add buffalo wing sauce and toss it until all shrimps turn pink
  7. Turn off heat and add 1/4 tablespoon butter
  8. Toss until butter is melted
  9. Serve with Hawaiian sweet rolls or any crusty bread and butter on the side to mop up the sauce


Can be doubled
If you double the quantity, it may take longer for the shrimp to be cooked because the more shrimp are in the same skillet, the longer it takes to heat it up.
