Shrimp Mold

Alright, the secret is out. I love shrimp.  I always look forward to little parties and get togethers because there is almost no doubt there is going to be a shrimp mold down here. 

I thought it was a southern thing, then I met a southerner that never heard of it before.  But I can tell you it's big in the heart of Louisiana! 

The next day it will be spicier, so keep that in mind when you are taste testing.
