      This is an excellent shrimp recipe,as it is very different from a standard creole recipe. Making a stock out of the shrimp shells is brilliant. I used all green peppers as I was out of red, and I used canned mushrooms. I will increase the tabasco sauce to 1/2 tsp the next time I make it to give the dish a little more zing. Served over steamed jasmine rice. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

      Excellent!!! I didn't have any tomato paste, and the shrimp I had on hand were already cooked and peeled, so I used a can of tomato sauce and about 3/4 cup of chicken stock. I also added some Tony's Creole seasoning for a little extra kick. The sour cream gave it a really different flavor from traditional shrimp Creole. Thanks for posting, Evelyn!

      This was quite a surprise, as it tasted far different than I expected. I really liked the use of the shrimp stock and the rich creaminess as a result of the sour cream. I have to admit that I didn't measure the flour, and that caused my sauce to be a little thicker than I liked, but that was my fault. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting, teammate!
