I wish I could take the credit for creating this recipe. This recipe was shown at a 'Taste of Home' Cooking Class. Sadly, to my knowledge these fun classes are no longer held in Florida. I did modify the Cayenne a bit as I am not a fan of really spicy food. When prepared for my family and friends, I find that even only one pound of the shrimp will do and goes a long way.
