      This was a great recipe! Had most of the ingredients in the cupboard already and added sauted green peppers and onions, a chicken breast that I grilled the same as the shrimp (which was frozen already cooked so I just threw that in last) and cut up some andoulle sausage (Johnstonville makes a great feux one you can find real cheap in the hotdog isle). Also used sticky white rice instead of grits. My family loved it! The sauce IS a little spicy, but we like it that way. You could probably cut the hot sauce in half to help a little.

      A really great recipe. Used leftover boiled shrimp and adapted the cook time accordingly. I do think that I will adjust the cajun seasoning a little....was a little hot for me...of course DH loved it hot!!! Thanks for the great recipe.
