    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This Paul Prudhomme recipe (that I found on the internet somewhere) is only for the true chile head- but if you are one (like me) it just doesn't get any better than this. He mentions in his notes that the amount of jalapeno in the recipe can be halved for a lower heat level, but if you are worried about that, this recipe is definitely not for you. OOOH, it hurts so good !!!

      I have been planning on making this recipe for a while, and I am sure glad that I finally got around to it. This recipe is great. DH is used to trying new recipes and is always happy to give me his opinion. He raved about this recipe. I used 1 large jalapeno pepper and about 1 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper. It was plenty hot. I knew I couldn't quite go to you level of heat!!!!! This will be a regular around our house. I did cook the shrimp for a couple of minutes before turning off also.

      I made half the recipe. Used one whole jalapeno. Didn`t use cayenne I used a pinch of dried habanro. I could have kicked up the heat even more. The veggies stayed nice and crisp. I did keep the heat on to complete cooking the shrimp. Lots of taste!
