From the marketofchoice.com website. All ingredient purchasing and prepping and the cooking credit is owed to the husband. Expensive, time-consuming yet relatively easy recipe. Prepping the ingredients is very important ('mise en place'). Sausage was from a local source/locally made with all-natural ingredients: Spicy Gorgonzola (pork) and Sun Dried Tomato Basil (chicken). My husband smoked the sausage for about 20 minutes in his Little Chief Smoker, cut the sausage into 1" slices then lightly browned on the stove top in a little bit of oil before adding to the soup pot. "Crab or lobster are also great options in place of or in addition to the shrimp, leaving shells intact (adds deep flavor to the boiling liquid)." <<--Next time we plan to try Dungess crab in this recipe. Spanish smoked paprika is very strongly flavored. Start off with 1/2 tablespoon then add more, to taste.
