Cajun Shrimp Chowder created by Jellyqueen

This recipe is an original from Mr. John O'Hara and was found in the Old Bay Cook Book. I made it last summer but added hot cooked sausage, cooked rice...you see where this one is going!

    Very Good Recipe! I didn't use wine cause I didn't have any, and I don't know if that's what caused it not to thicken up, but it came out more like an etouffee/gumbo, so I made some brown rice to go with it. Still turned out really good tho! Thanks for the recipe!

    Great Recipe! My mother in law and I fixed this for dinner and it turned out great. I also added a little cream at the end. We served it over basmati rice. We'll make this again! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us!

    I am eating the leftover as I type. This was the 2nd time I made this and this is my favorite! The first time I used diced tomatoes (everything else the same), the 2nd time crushed. Either one is great. I also added alittle cream right before serving. Too Good!

    I made this last night for dinner and really enjoyed it. Hubby, however, didn't care for it. He didn't comment about what he didn't like about it, so I can't help there. I did make a few substitutions - used a yellow bell pepper instead of the red one, used a 14oz. can of chopped tomatoes instead of crushed, and chicken broth instead of water. I also thickened it a little bit with arrowroot when it was done, as it was pretty watery. I would recommend using smaller shrimp. Mine were huge, and should have been chopped to a smaller size so as to fit on the spoon. I thought the Old Bay seasoning was good, but it did overpower the shrimp flavor. However, I would not recommend reducing the amount, as it seemed just right to me in spite of that fact. I probably won't make it again, due to hubby's reaction, but I liked it. It was not too spicy. In fact, I thought it was just right in that regard.
