Reviews for Louisiana Shrimp
"Tried this recipe today...buttery n light tasting...husband liked them better than party shrimps (also in TOH) ...I cut the recipe in 1/3 but still thought it uses way too much butter...also the lemon wedges left a little bitter taste in the end but that's perhaps because the lemon I used was green n not fully ripe...will be making it again...ate all the shrimps and saved the excess butter to use again!!"
"Nice zing without being too hot. My 9 year old daughter,16 year old son, and husband loved it. I had all the ingredients on hand and simple to make."
"This is delicious! I made it for dinner for my nieces and served it with corn on the cob and broccoli rice."
"that was a hit, very good."
"This has become my new favorite! My eight year old twins love it !"
