Stashing this for fall shrimp - fat & delicious in still warm water but oh so good on the first chilly nights. This recipe came from The Times-Picayune. The recipe noted to please make fresh mashed potatoes & green peas to go with the shrimp. Go easy with the Kitchen Bouquet - a little is good but too much is ungood.
