      This was very good, I cut the recipe in half. I was looking for something to make with bagged frozen shrimp I bought on sale. This was perfect. Thank you so much.

      This was delicious shrimp creole. I let it simmer on the stove for a couple hours, so I didn't need to do the broth-and-flour thickener. I also reduced the cayenne pepper to 1/2 t. and that was still plenty spicy for everyone, and not too fiery for my 8 year old. I added a bit more Worcestershire sauce, too, and an extra can of diced tomatoes. Served over rice with sides of corn bread and salad. A hearty creole that smelled wonderful as it cooked and went together with handy ingredients. Winner!
