Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I know it sounds like a lot of butter, but there needs to enough to cover the shrimp when they are cooking. I always add something to make my Creole "pop", so try some tabasco sauce or old bay seasoning. I tried to reduce this recipe down to serve approx. 6 people, but of course, you all know I was always cooking for about 20!!!
