    Chef #SLDenton's Note:

    A few years ago my husband and I were in Kemah, and with our meal, we were served regular coleslaw with bits of shrimp in it. The slaw was good but we felt that it needed something to spice it up, so I came up with my own recipe. During the hot summer months we enjoy it as a light meal with toasted garlic bread, on these occasion I use 2 pounds of shrimp. Every time I serve this salad it is a big hit and I never have any left over. In order to save preparation time I have the grocer steam the shrimp in Cajun spice, while I do the rest of my shopping. NOTE: The dressing will taste stronger before you toss it with the salad, the salad dilutes the taste of the dressing.

      I had half a bag of thawed shrimp when I was getting ready for my Fourth celebration. I found this recipe and thought I would give it a try to put a regional twist on a standard offering. Absolutely delicious! I will definitely make this again!!! Thanks very much for sharing...

      I made this with some Marinated Coleslaw I had left over with added Miracle Whip and Tony Chachere's More Spice, served on Torta rolls. Excellent!

      I know where you were - Hillman's. We're you there when the old lady was along? 4 stars on that alone.
