This a wonderful one pan meal. Crusty bread and a salad make for a terrific Nah-leens style dinner.

Oh, CC!! This recipe is so good! We really enjoyed our meal this evening thanks to your posting. I made this exactly as directed, only since it was just the two of us, I cut the shrimp to 1 1/2 lbs. Simple to make yet really delicious! A definate keeper! Thanks, CC!!

I thought it needed some more hot sauce to kick it up, but pretty good.

As good as restaurant fare! Maybe I'm weird but I think it's best with boiled cabbage with LOTS of hot sauce on everything! LOL.
