  1. Melt bacon fat in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook until browned, stirring constantly to make a brown roux (see Editor's Note). Stir tomatoes, tomato sauce, minced onion, green pepper, parsley, garlic, water, salt and pepper into the roux. Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add shrimp to mixture and cook until the shrimp turn pink, and have turned opaque in the center.

Very delicious. I used butter instead of bacon fat and it still turned out great. My husband and I have been fighting over the leftovers ever since I made it last night.

This is a family favorite. I use olive oil instead of bacon fat because I very rarely have that on hand and then as others suggested browned the onionfirst. I also use red,yellow and orange pepp...

This recipe is really easy to make. I had to add 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp. tabasco to spice it up a little. But great flavor overall.

This was very good. I added some cayenne pepper and a little bit of hot sauce as well. Very easy to make. Tasted a bit sweet, I guess it was due to the tomatoes.

Surprisingly delicious. I added celery and replaced bacon fat with olive oil and bacon bits. It's so easy to make, I can even make this during work week.

Family thought this was so yummy i have been waiting years for this recipe
