The addition of Tabasco(R) or other hot sauce and cayenne pepper is for those who love spice and do not have access to our Zesty Hot Cooking Sauce.  We also have a Fiery Shrimp Creole recipe for real heat lovers!
DO NOT use precooked shrimp or they will not absorb the flavor of the sauce and will get tough.
