I adapted this recipe from a friend. The hot sauce can certainly be increased, but my elderly mother likes it this way.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make a roux with the flour and oil (in a heavy pot, combine the two ingredients until smooth; cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the mixture is a rich deep brown.).
  2. Add the onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic. Cook until tender (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, bay leaves, Worcestershire, pepper sauce, Italian seasoning, sugar, and wine. Salt and pepper to ttaste.
  4. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 45 to 60 minutes.
  5. Add the shrimp. Simmer, uncovered, until shrimp are pink and cooked (it only takes a few minutes, about 5 or 6).
  6. Serve over rice.
