    Marcinho Savant's Note:

    If you're like me, you keep a bag or two of shrimp in the freezer, just in case. In this slightly more gourmet approach to a simple shrimp a la Creole, I was able to work an entire day, take a 1/2 hour break and whip this up for my Grandmother for lunch! AND get back to the office!
