Cajun Shrimp
Serving Size : 20
1 gallon Salted Water
1 lg. Lemon, sliced
6 pounds Shrimp, cleaned/unpeeled
2 cups Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Tabasco Sauce
1 tablespoon Garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Seafood Seasoning,
1 1/2 teaspoons Basil,Dried,Ground
1 1/2 teaspoons Oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons Thyme,Ground
2 teaspoons Parsley,Fresh,Chopped
2 heads Lettuce

Clean shrimp by removing head and legs. Place into boiling water and cook until done ( about 3-5 Minutes ) drain and put ice into shrimp to cool them as quick as possible. Continue cleaning them by removing the shell and vein ( leave the tail and last segment of shell on ). Combine the remaining ingredients except lettuce, beat with a wire whisk. Pour over shrimp; toss. Cover; chill 24 hours. Turn occasionally. Drain and serve in a lettuce lined shallow bowl. Serve cold.
The hot sauce seems to get diluted by the oil so you might need to adjust the amount of hot sauce to your individual taste.


Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may diet.
