THIS RECIPE IS A BELIGHTFUL MIX OF FRESH VEGETABLES AND SHIMP. I USED FOR 8 SERVINGS AND USED ONLY ONE CAN OF TOMATOE PUREE AND LESS WATER ALSO I USED TWO TEASPOONS OF FLOUR. THIS MADE THE TEXTURE OF THE BROUTH PERFECT. Read More

Made this the other night and it was just OK...not as Creole tasting as I would like. I didn't have a 10.75 oz can of puree and used some tomato sauce and a can of tomato paste maybe that was the problem??? Anyway it was alright but will try a different recipe next time. Read More

This is excellent. I wouldn't say it is spicy but has a great flavor. Next time I might add a little more cajun seasoning. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Very tasty and not difficult at all. I did use chicken broth instead of water. That was the only change I made. Made it last night... having leftovers tonight and can't wait! I love when after dinner my husband says "That's a keeper!" Thanks for the "keeper"! Read More

Easy to make and delicious flavor. I chose to make the sauce without cooking the shrimp in it. Instead I sauteed the shrimp in butter and cajun spices and served it on top. Read More

I have made this recipe many times. Everytime it comes out perfect. The only change I have made is to add more shrimp. Everyone loves it and always asks me to make it again. Read More

I am a very inexperienced cook just beginning to realize the benefits of a good homecooked meal - and this receipe was simple and DELICIOUS! I do not stick to measurements well but you couldn't tell at all with this - it tasted perfect! The longer you let it cool after it's done - the yummier it gets. I will make this over and over and really appreciate the posting! Read More
