We doubled this recipe, as we had a pound of shrimp, and it was extremely tasty! We had this with refried black beans and guacamole for a lighter, but extremely satisfying dinner. The remoulade is unbelievably spicy! We loved the mix of flavors, but would consider backing off of the spices just a bit as we expected the remoulade to provide a bit of a cooling effect, and the spices really heated it up instead. We had leftovers, which were delicious as a light lunch the next day, too. Winner.
