Southern Pickled Shrimp – A Sneak Peek into Summer FEAST

Today, Fluffy Chix Cook shared one of their prized recipes from Summer FEAST e-book on Birgitta Höglund’s LCHF Made in Sweden blog, and they are jumping up and down waving fluffy wings about it! Low carb keto Southern Pickled Shrimp is a Southern delicacy along the Gulf Coast and every family has their own treasured recipe. Join us on Birgitta’s blog to see this delicious shrimp recipe and find out why the Fluffys love to eat it year round. It’s a low carb keto blockbuster shrimp recipe!






Southern Pickled Shrimp Introduction


Southern Picked Shrimp was one of the first recipes little baby Susie ever remembered eating. The Fluffy family was one of the pioneering families on their block to have a 2nd freezer (a luxury) in the family garage. It was strictly dedicated to frozen shrimp, crab, fish-both freshwater and Gulf, and the venison and birds Susie’s dad and brothers brought home from their hunting-gathering sessions. Some of Susie’s fondest memories revolved around visiting the shrimp boats in Kemah and buying shrimp straight off the boat, directly from the shrimp boat captain. They knew her by name and let her come aboard to visit and chase blue crab that escaped the huge mounds of shrimp and by-catch piled high on the deck, layered with hundreds of pounds of melting crushed ice.

The Fluffy family would come home with 2-3 ice chests packed to the brim with ice, shrimp and blue crabs. The family would sit on the back patio listening to the transistor radio, chatting all at once, and head shrimp for hours. After portioning and freezing in salt water baths, part of the shrimp were boiled along with the chest full of free crab, gifted to them by the shrimper. (In the old days, blue crab were a nuisance to shrimpers and were given away, free to any and all! It was a Southern Gulf Coast Fluffy fandango and Susie loved every minute of it. She especially loved her WaWa’s recipe for Southern Pickled Shrimp.)

    Glad that you came over to Sweden for a visit, Sooze, and shared the touching story from your childhood with my readers. And for the delicious recipe, your shrimps seems absolutely fabulous!!
    I grew up in a very tiny village in the mountains of Dalecarlia, Sweden, with almost no other children to play with. Now, thanks to Internet, I have found new friends all over the world.
    So glad I was invited to came and play with you and the Chix <3

    • Thank you so much for hosting us! It was the Fluffys’ first guest blog appearance!

Have been snowed under with a deadline for today, so hopefully after that I will have a moment to go figure it out so I can leave a message of thanks for you on your blog!! 🙂 So glad we’ve met and are now friends! <3
