(another pinner's comment = Sylvia Estey I searched too and couldn't find it but try this...equal parts of brown sugar and chili powder (3 Tbsp of each will coat about 20+ big raw shrimp), wrap in bacon first, if desired and toss in above mixture, broil, turning once, about 6-8 min or BBQ. I pin each one with a toothpick if adding the bacon. It is very yummy and looks very much like above spice rub. Enjoy!

Cajun Shrimp and Rice - Review: This was very good. A great alternative to using leftover rice instead of making fried rice as I often do. Can be economical as well. I only used a half pound of medium shrimp instead of a whole pound of large. I did not see any reason to add the quarter cup of water toward the end of cook time, so left it out. Also, the recipe doesn't specify measurements for salt and pepper, so just added to taste, and added some cayenne pepper for a little more heat.

Cajun Shrimp Guacamole - Avocados are a great source of heart healthy fats, but remember they are still high in calories, so proceed with portion caution! Rather than cooking the shrimp in butter, try coating them with the spices and grilling them, or substitute a small amount of Olive oil to pan sear.
