Pat shrimp dry and season very well with blackening seasoning. Melt butter in a pan over high heat and cook shrimp until opaque and cooked thoroughly, about 1-2 minutes each side. Remove from pan. Reserve about half of the shrimp for garnish, and finely chop the other half. Halve the eggs lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place in a medium bowl. Combine yolks with mayonnaise, sour cream, dijon mustard, lemon juice and hot sauce; stir until smooth. Fold in the chopped shrimp. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fill the egg whites evenly with the yolk mixture (use a Ziploc as a piping bag and cut off one corner to pipe into eggs). Garnish with remaining shrimp (cut larger shrimp in half), paprika and chopped green onions.
