Memories of New Orleans shrimp

Spicy, buttery shrimp with New Orleand flair
I love New Orleans! It is one of my favourite cities in North America. I grew up on the east coast and love seafood. They do it so well in Crescent City. I could understand why a good friend of mine, a native of NOLA, was missing one of his local favourites. I couldn’t get him there that weekend, but I did come up with this simple recipe that comes close to the flavour. Put on some Dr. John and try it.
