Spicy Cajun Shrimp Recipe

This spicy cajun shrimp recipe sounds like a lot of work, but it is not. Have the garlic french bread ready and the rice cooked, once these spicy cajun shrimp are done you"ll want to serve them right away. I sometimes leave out the crushed red peppers, they just make it a little too warm for the wife to eat.

With only 1 pound of shrimp this will not probably feed more than 3.
