It was absolutely flavorful and spicy and delicious! I had dirty rice and corn along with the shrimp, which really made a nice meal.
Notice the empty placemat in front of my placemat…Neil wouldn’t have liked something this spicy anyway. Oh well, more for me!
* Disclaimer: for those who care, that is not wine in that wine glass. It’s actually Dr. Pepper. I poured it in a wine glass because my other glasses are dirty. And a wine glass is much classier looking than a mason jar!
