It's very good. But it's a bit salty. I added more water though.
Great recipe!!! I did not use the shrimp tails, but cut up cooked shrimp and added it after I cooked the green onions (instead of regular onions),celery and carrots. I also added fresh crabmeat which was a wonderful addition and gave it a nice flavor. I have made this twice and both times it is excellent. Can be made with just the crab meat too. Thanks for sharing such a delicious recipe.
