My favorite marinated shrimp. This recipe came from a Gourmet group Creole dinner in the mid-1970's. Must be prepared 12 hours ahead.

This was excellent. I had it at a recent family gathering and it was addictive. It was great with crackers or just by itself. I'm going to try making it for my next party!!!
