Here in south Louisiana fresh shrimp is only as far away as the neighborhood grocery stores. If you can't get fresh shrimp it's okay to use frozen just don't get the precooked shrimp or it will end up too rubbery from overcooking. Shrimp cooks so fast that when we do boils the shrimp only go in for 3-5 minutes depending on the size AFTER the fire has been turned off.
