This was Delicious! HOT & SPICY! A friend's family has a secret cajun shrimp recipe and I always wanted to be able to make my own. This recipe is actually better than theirs! :) It was very easy to make and the french bread was good dipped in the sauce around the shrimp and to soothe the burning mouth. I will use this recipe over and over im sure!

I loved the recipe - just watch that you don't overcook the prawns. I used 2 cloves of fresh garlic, 2 tbsp wocestershire sauce and 2 tbsp hot sauce (Peri-Peri). The heat is spo adjustable to suit your own taste. The bread is a must! Thanks

This is soooooo good. I think I could have kicked it up with a little more red pepper and hot sauce, but making it the first time, I went conservative. It is really very good. I will certainly make it again. Thanks Sarah for posting it.
