    I made this for a Mardi Gras party last night to feed 20. It was a huge hit, with friends asking for a copy of the recipe. I did add a can of chicken broth, a small can of tomato sauce and some additional spices to add to the flavor. I will definitely make this again.

    This was a very good recipe, but where is the liquid to come from? After working in flour, had a paste and then the liquid form canned tomatoes and pepper sauce not enough to think of a 'boil'. Had to add some chicken broth and wine to make it less gooey. Very tasty and worthy of another try.

    This was perfectly delicious! I found out half way through that I didn't have any cayenne pepper sauce but I used about 1 t. cajun seasoning and it subbed excellently! Very tasty and easy! Thanks!

    This is how shrimp creole should be, easy and quick. I'm glad I didn't waste time on another recipe. This was "GREAT" just like I've had it in the south.
