Cajun Shrimp Chowder

Recipe by Diana Adcock

This recipe is an original from Mr. John O'Hara and was found in the Old Bay Cook Book. I made it last summer but added hot cooked sausage, cooked see where this one is going!

Very Good Recipe! I didn't use wine cause I didn't have any, and I don't know if that's what caused it not to thicken up, but it came out more like an etouffee/gumbo, so I made some brown rice to go with it. Still turned out really good tho! Thanks for the recipe!
