"This is one of my Husband's favorite dishes. It isn't exactly healthy, but it is fabulous. It is a common dish in Louisiana. This recipe feeds a lot of people. You can cut it in half for a family dinner." — Melissa S.

Wow! These were delicious. The only thing I would change next time is to add a little more creole seasoning. I used the recipe for 4 servings with 1 1/2 lb shrimp for extra sauce to dip hush puppies in. I will definately make this again.
Sorry, but I found this to be sooooo salty we could not eat it.
My husband said IF we try it again to only use a teaspoon or two of Worchestershire.
This recipe was sooooooo salty it was a waste of $36.00 in seafood,
This was awesome!!! I made a few modifications as some other reviewers suggest: added red pepper, a little more creole seasoning, and halfed the butter content. It was plenty rich and there is no need for that extra butter. Will make again!
I only gave it 4 stars because it was soooo rich. Yummy, yummy but I would add more cajun seasoning too. I made half the recipe for Valentines day and we couldn't finish our servings it was so rich. I will serve it again, but as a side dish to a meal or appetizer.
These were yummy. I took it to a Superbowl party and they were a hit. Just make sure you use ready to eat shrimp. I grabbed peel and eat by accident and the flavor did not go through to the shrimp as well. Thanks!
This was so good! I made this last week while in the US for my daughter's best friend and she just loved it. I sauteed all veggies/spices/butter in my cast iron skillet then threw in the shrimp and baked. I served with homemade mashed pototoes and french bread to sop up the sauce. Very easy and quick and yummy.
This was great. I did follow other reviews and didn't use as much butter, and used more creole seasoning. My boyfriend loved it. I paired it with garlic mashed potatoes, and steamed asparagus. Yummy.
This is our favortie shrimp recipe. We ate at Bubba Gumps in Ordered the New Orleans Shrimp. I looked for a long time before I found the one that tasted just like it! This is THE ONE!
