    Izzy Knight's Note:

    This is my "superbowl fancy food" for my husband. I got the recipe from a Mardi Gras party. Great over rice or with hot buns.

      This was fabulous! Sauce thickened up to consistency of tomato paste during 20 minute simmer, but waited it out to add more liquid as you add 1/2 cup wine at end. It was still a bit thick after that so I splashed in about 1/4 cup more chicken stock. Also, I added more Tabasco and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red chili pepper while sauce was simmering. Easy, quick and very tasty!

      This is an absolutely incredible recipe! It smelled so good while it was cooking that I couldn't wait for my husband to come home for supper, so I ate without him! I served it with rice, and I seriously doubt there will be any leftovers tonight! This is a money saving recipe too because I'll save the airfare to New Orleans! I have New Orleans cuisine right here in my own home! This is a keeper, Izzy. Thanks for sharing!

      Wow, this was so fine. I made your shrimp creole as a suprise for my husband's birthday. It is one of his favorite dishes. We both thought it was outstanding and the seasonings took us right back to our time spent in New Orleans. The only addition was some crushed red pepper to increase the heat. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
