This turned out very well! We used 1 pound of shrimp and it was just fine. We will make this again. Thank you for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown onion and celery.
  2. Add everything, except shrimp, into a pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Add shrimp.
  4. Shrimp will cook very quickly, within 5 minutes -- Shrimp will appear nice and pink.
  5. I usually let it slowly simmer 15 minutes or so to let the flavor get through it.
  6. This is also a great make - ahead and freeze dish. It only gets better the longer it sits.
  7. We serve it over rice or with crackers and a side salad.
