How to Make New Orleans Style Hot and Spicy Shrimp


  • 1In large kettle, sauté together first 5 ingredients until vegetables are soft.
    Add next 7 ingredients and simmer sauce for 15 minutes. Add shrimp and heat
    through. Serve over a bed of Spiced Rice (recipe follows). Cornbread muffins are
    a nice accompaniment. Serves 6

    Spiced Rice:

    1 1/2 cups long grain rice

    3 cups chicken broth

    2 T. oil

    1/2 t. sweet basil flakes

    1/2 t. thyme flakes

    1/4 t. each cayenne pepper and paprika

    Salt and pepper to taste

    IN pan, stir together all ingredients. Cover pan and simmer rice for about 30
    minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Serves 6

    Note: If you are stout of heart and enjoy hot, fiery dishes, this is a nice one
    to consider. This is very "hot: for me, although blazing palates will find this
    mild. Increase amount of cayenne, if you enjoy bringing tears to your eyes.
