    So good! The sauce really makes it-not overdone so you still get the great taste o the shrimp but with an extra punch of flavor. Pared it with the suggested salad. Delicious meal, I will make this again!

    I really liked this recipe. The shrimps were great all by themselves but the sauce really makes the dish. I do have to admit I didn’t make this as healthy as the recipe calls for. My grocery store only sells shrimps in one pound bags and my fry pan would not accommodate 2 pounds of shrimp in 2 batches. So I had to use about 6 tablespoons of olive oil, about 2 per batch. Also i had everything on hand except the creole seasoning so I made one from a recipe I found online that included salt.

    These were fabulous. Yum! I made them with the cole slaw recipe from the "Pan-Seared Shrimp Po' Boys". These shrimp have a similar taste to that recipe but with a nice panko crunch and not on a sandwich.

    When my husband says "yum" more than once during a meal, I know a recipe is a keeper. This one definitely is. Delicious!

    Excellent! I had prepared them ahead of time and all I had to do was quickly pan fry them right before serving. The only thing I changed was light cream instead of milk. It's such a small amount, I don't think it affected the calorie count that much. Next time I will add a little more cajun seasoning because I like spicy but they were wonderful as is. Makes a great 1st course appetizer.

    I started with panko but ran out, so I used regular breadcrumbs with the other half. We preferred the breadcrumbs shrimp to the panko shrimp. Also, I added extra cajun seasoning to the mayo- it was a little bland when prepared as directed

    I was looking for a different version for fried shrimp. This was a perfect choice. The creole mayonnaise is unique from anything I've tried and has great flavor.

    These were so good! Everyone enjoyed them. Will definitely make again and again!

    Dry and flavorless. The sauce helped but overwhelmed the shrimp.

    Shrimp was okay. Breading was sorta boring. Very blah overall. The mayo needs more kick if you are going to call it Creole. The Worcestershire sauce overpowered the hot sauce and seasoning and needs tweeking. I'll make it again since the hubby liked it, but will definitely add some cayenne.

    Love this recipe! My husband wants this once a week. Use Emeril's Bayou Blast for seasoning and add extra salt. Tried the Creole mayo once then we decided cocktail sauce was better.Sides are oven-baked Alexas fries and coleslaw
