For this recipe I used some basic seasonings of Italian, parsley, salt and pepper but you could always make it spicy by adding some cayenne pepper and other seasoning. I also used fresh raw shrimp as I think it tastes better with fresh but you could also use frozen shrimp. Just make sure it is thawed out before you begin the recipe. Enjoy!
