ADD THESE INGREDIENTS CAREFULLY SO YOU DON'T BREAK THE BAG OF SPICES!!!

|These are some of the yummy shrimp we brought back from Destin, FL.|
Here's what I do next. I put a HUGE colander in the kitchen sink and carefully spoon out the ingredients until I can safely get the bag of spices out.....and then I 'dump' the rest of the ingredients into the colander. IF you break the bag of spices, this will be REALLY spicey......and you'll have to rinse the ingredients off with hot water as best as you can unless you like super-spicey food. Put some on your plate, grab a fork if you want to and lots of napkins or paper towels. Put a bowl or plate in the center of the table for the shrimp shells & corn cobs.
IF you can find Old Bay seasonings, use those instead of the Zatarain's......it has more flavor.....or at least we think so. The mushrooms are optional.....the original recipe I have doesn't call for them.....but we like them.
I didn't bother with figuring up the P+ on this. Your particular P+ value would depend on how many of each ingredient you opt to eat. This is just one of those recipes where I just throw caution to the wind! It's just that good!!! And so......I don't have to put the disclaimer on this one!
