Number of Servings: 5


    3 slices bacon, diced
    1/2 lb butter or margarine
    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon basil
    1/4 teaspoon thyme
    1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon oregano

    1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    1 lb large precooked peeled shrimp
    2 tablespoons crab boil seasoning (optional)
    1 dash of salt ifnot using the crab boil


1) Fry the bacon until crisp, then remove and crumble. Leave about a tablespoon or so of the bacon grease in the pan and pour off whatever might be left.
2) Add the butter to the bacon grease in the pan and allow to melt.
4) Over medium heat, ad the mustard, spices and hot sauce, stirring to evenly mix all the ingredients.
5) Take the shrimp and add to the sauce, raising the heat to medium-high and stirring to thoroughly coat all of the shrimp with the sauce. Cook until the shrimp have been warmed up.
6) Serve over rice (white or brown), couscous, or pasta. Enjoy!
