      Shrimp was good but batter was too light almost none on the shrimp. Will add more spice next time.

      We're now the talk of the town! We substituted crawfish tails for the shrimp and served them with sweet bijou chili sauce. It was served as an appetizer at a Mardi Gras dinner and the attendees are still talking about it! Thanks for sharing!
