    EDMISTON99's Note:

    If you've never eaten authentic creole, you truly don't know what you're missing. I discovered this Louisiana favorite while residing there and it was love at first bite. This dish has a very unique taste that defies description. It is very easy to make, and you're doing yourself a serious disservice if you don't give it a try. You can use crawfish rather than shrimp. Crawfish are simply not plentiful where I now live. Don't be lured into making an "easy" version of this with Ro-tel or mushroom soup. This is easy enough to make from scratch.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In large dutch oven, make roux by heating oil until hot over medium heat, then adding flour a little at a time, stirring constantly, allowing flour to sizzle away, then adding a little more.
    2. 2
      When roux reaches the color of peanut butter, add chopped onions, celery, garlic and green peppers and saute, stirring occasionally, while you perform the next step (about 5 minutes). Don't let burn.
    3. 3
      In a sauce pan, melt butter, then add tomato paste. Saute paste and butter whisking with small whisk until smooth (about 5 minutes), then mix with roux from above.
    4. 4
      Slowly stir in chicken broth, water with dissolved bouillon cubes and salt, pepper, cayenne and paprika.
    5. 5
      Cook for 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add shrimp/crawfish 5 minutes before serving.
    7. 7
      Serve over rice.
