Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Using a fork, pierce squashes all over. Place on baking sheet and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until tender. Let cool 15 minutes. Slice squash in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out seeds and discard. Using a fork, shred squash meat into a large bowl and set aside. Toss out skin. In a large cast iron skillet, melt 1 Tbsp of butter over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and 1 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning and cook until shrimp are pink and firm, about 5 minutes. Remove shrimp and set aside. In the same skillet, add 1 Tbsp of butter over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic, sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add white wine and chicken broth, increase heat to high. Bring to a boil and let boil until liquid is reduced by two-thirds. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in remaining 4 Tbsp of butter, cream, capers and 1 Tbsp of Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Seasoning.
