    Alan in SW Florida's Note:

    Spicy shrimp that get their fiery heat from a Cajun marinade. After reading the book "Exit To Eden", I came across this recipe for barbecued shrimp, "which was nothing short of fantastic", that sounded like the dish described in the story.

      I visited New Orleans recently and loved this dish.. This is as every good as what I had in New Orleans. Just add a BigAss beer and you are there!

      I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. I can usually "take it or leave it" when it comes to shrimp, but this was AMAZING! My fiance and I made this last night for Valentines Day, with some steaks. This was the star of the show, however. It was easy to make and SOOOO worth it. I think next time we might try it over rice. We had pre-cooked, peeled shrimp so that's what we used. I wasn't sure if it would turn out the same since this calls for raw shrimp, but it worked just fine.
