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.

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.

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!

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"!

this was good. i added 2 slices of lemon and let them simmer in the sauce then i removed them w/ the bay leaf. my grandma taught me that. also used homemade shrimp stock instead of the water for more flavor. chix stock would work fine too

Made this recipe as written. The kids and I loved it. Husband said it was good but too watery. I think he didn't use enough rice to soak up the yummy sauce! I will make this again.

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.
