Put a little "boing" in your shrimp. Avery Island, LA is the home of Tabasco Sauce. The "island" is basically sort of a "salt hill" in the wetlands, formed by ancient deposits. A lot of that salt ends up in your Tabasco Sauce, along with some nice ripe red chile peppers and wine vinegar. It's one of my favorites, and this recipe adds a little Tabasco pizazz to your party.

I'm in my 30's and my mother made this all the time when I was a child. She still makes it. :) It is one of those recipes that sticks around in your kitchen and is always a go-to for something tasty. And as another person has mentioned, I do believe it was from the 'old betty crocker cookebook'...which I still have!

This is one of my favorite recipes. I got this out of a Betty Crocker cookbook from the '70's. I serve it over rice as was indicated in the cook book.
