Comment(s):

This Cajun Mardi Gras Shrimp and Sausage are beyond delicious.

When you mix butter, spices, more butter, lemon and shrimp, it’s about to be a party in your mouth.

Tips:
  • You need really large shrimp. The bigger the better - so go with extra-large shrimp if possible.
  • If you have the Louisiana brand of smoked sausage like "andouille" or "tasso" - you’re one lucky person. (These brands are most often associated with Louisiana Cajun and Creole cuisine, especially in gumbo dish.) If you can not find them - you can use any lean smoked sausage.
