DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a large pan over low heat. Gradually whisk in the flour until it forms a paste. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until it turns a caramel color, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  • Add your onions, green pepper, celery and garlic and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes or until the veggies get limp.
  • Add your shrimp and stir to coat in the roux. Then add black pepper, cayenne, Cajun seasoning, green onions, parsley and the Tabasco (to taste).
  • Add 1 cup of water and stir until incorporated. Add the tomatoes with their juice and stir to blend. Taste for seasoning. Add the salt, starting with 1 t and adding more if needed. Bring the whole mixture to a boil then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until the shrimp get firm and pink. Once the flavors are nicely blended, you can serve and enjoy!
