This is a really great recipe, it was first published in 1992 in Bon Appetite. It can vary greatly depending on the creole spice you're using and also my experience is that you can halve the oil.
Quick easy recipe, I usually prep the day before and cook next day. Love this
We loved this shrimp recipe!! Loved all the flavorings. I cut it in half because I didn't have a whole lb. of shrimp. I will use this one over and over. Thanks!!
