Avery Island Deviled Shrimp

Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

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.

My mom used to make this often... big hit. However, we always put it over rice... when I first made this for my fiancee it had quickly became one of his favorite meals!
