I found this recipe one on the Internet years ago and make it quite often. It comes from the "Voila!" cookbook by the Junior League of Lafayette, Louisiana. I thought it was kind of interesting that this recipe called for bay shrimp, which is a coldwater, west coast shrimp, so that got me wondering about the true origins of this recipe. I'd love to try it some day with coldwater shrimp, if I could only get it fresh, but it's still excellent with our wonderful gulf coast brown shrimp.

Excellent. Used a ceramic casserole to cook the shrimp in. The shrimp came out perfectly cooked. I was concerned about the relatively long cooking time. I served it over rice and will make it again.
