Not sure but it has a little bit of heat to the spice. The shrimp is served hot. It is a little salty tasting but absolutely marvelous. I just love bringing friends her.

Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.
