New Orleans style shrimp

Spicy, buttery baked shrimpI love New Orleans! It is one of my favourite cities in North America. I grew up on the east coast and love seafood, but they do it so well in the Crescent City. I 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. This recipe is perfect for warm spring weather. Serve it with a salad and some rice.
