We love everything about New Orleans culture and try to visit our favorite US city (next to Detroit) a couple of times a year. This is my take on a NOLA favorite, making it even more simple. I serve this as an appetizer of 6 shrimp per portion or a main dish with 10 or 12 shrimp per portion. So delicious!
