VERY TASTY! the sauce is like a bisque. Very shrimpy flavored because of the shells and because of the roux it tastes a little creamy. The corn flap jacks are very tasty also, just be sure to have patience when cooking them or they will taste a bit like flour.(undercooked) they take a little bit longer to cook then pancakes. The sauce seems to taste more like shrimp bisque than cajun though.

  3. Set the batter aside.
  5. Peel the shrimp, clean & devein, and place the shells in a shallow saucepan with the water and cayenne.
