We make this at least once a month. I think it is originally from long, long ago Bon Apetit magazine, I clipped out the recipe and have it pasted in a cooking scrap-book. Prep time does NOT include peeling and deveining the shrimp as many stores now sell shrimp all cleaned up for you and ready to prepare! Prep time DOES include time for marinating. Keep in mind, many Creole and Cajun Seasonings can be salty, so you may want to adjust for that in regards to the recipe in general or the use of soy sauce!
