Awesome dish! I used a bag of frozen (1-1/2#) shrimp defrosted with 1/4 of everything else. It was absolutely scrumptious! I used Texas Pete instead of Tobasco. Thank you, SusieQusie!

5 Big Ones Susie! Cut the recipe way back to serve two. Very tasty. . . served with sourdough french bread and a salad. Think this would make a wonderful appetizer before a cajun dinner. Will have to try that next time! Thanks for sharing!
