Step 4

4 Pour the corn on top and let it sit undisturbed for about 2 minutes

Step 11

11 Toss the shrimp in the butter to lightly coat

Step 12

12 Place the shrimp on a platter and season liberally and evenly on both sides with the Creole/Cajun seasoning; it’s okay if some of it falls off

Step 16

Step 17

17 If you’re cooking in batches and the butter does start to burn, carefully wipe the skillet clean and start over with fresh butter for the next batch

Step 18

18 To check if the shrimp are done, cut one in half -- it should be opaque throughout

Step 19

19 Divide the vegetables among four plates, top with the shrimp and sprinkle with parsley, if using

Step 20

20 NOTE: Temple leaves the tail shell on the end of the shrimp to protect the tender tip in the blackening process

Step 21
