"This might be my favorite summer recipe! I did use a substitute for the cajun seasoning. I used Zatarin's Blackened Seasoning. Close enough. And, I added 3 Tbsp. of sour cream to the dressing to make it creamy. I loved it!"

"This is pretty good, but 1 pound of shrimp does not go far--it truly IS only 4 servings. My sons liked it without the dressing."
