I have made these for years,I have no idea where this recipe first came from.It is in my handwritting ,on a sheet of old loose leaf paper.Simple and eazy and can be doubled or tripled.I buy the shrimp from the frozen food section of Wal-Mart .If you can get the fresh shrimp ,use them .But if not use the RAW frozen one..Just defrost first
