Picture for Shrimp inspired by Forrest Gump Part II

6,294,003 views  This week, we finally revisit the all-American fantasy of Forrest Gump, crossing a few more dishes off Bubba's comprehensive shrimp-preparation list. Due to the growing complexity of the dishes, I've had to cut it down to three this time around, but hey - that means there's gonna be a Part III! Eventually.

Heat vegetable oil over medium high heat in a stainless steel skillet. Add your head on, unpeeled shrimp. Once they’ve cooked on one side for 1 minute, add your garlic, your ground pepper, and 2 Tbsp of the creole seasoning.
