Been making this stuff since I was old enough to cook....typical South Louisiana fare. Serve over rice with a crusty loaf of French bread and ENJOY!

This was a really good shrimp recipe. I was unsure about the brown sugar, but it worked well. I would like more pepper in this to contrast the sweetness though. Thanks, Sherry, and congrats on the football pool win!
