    Malriah's Note:

    A New Orleans original! True comfort food for any Cajun. I dug this recipe up for *Denise*. I'm not sure where it came from but I think it is my sister's.

      Ellie2, just so you know, mushrooms release A LOT of moisture when they are cooked. There is also a pretty big difference between 2lbs of shrimp and 3lbs of shrimp. All of these things could have contributed to the extra "sauce." Plus, Shrimp Creole is very 'saucy' to begin with. Anyway, thanks for trying this recipe and I am glad you liked it.

      Very good but I think it needs more hot sauceand/or more spice. I only used 2 pounds of shrimp and 2 bell peppers and I also added about 1/2 lb of mushrooms but I had too much sauce.
