3/4 stick butter

1 tablespoon Cajun meat seasoning

2 1/2 cups julienne tasso

3 cups heavy cream

4 dozen cleaned shrimp

1 1/2 cups sliced green onion


  1. Melt most of the butter in skillet then add tasso and seasoning. Cook at medium heat for about 10 minutes, scraping the pan every so often to remove the fond. Add cream and increase heat to reduce it by 1/21/2 being careful to not let the cream boil over on the stove. When cream starts to thicken add shrimp and cook 1 to 2 minutes until shrimp are just cooked. Add the green onions and cook for a count of five then add rest of butter and toss over your favorite pasta shape.
