"This is the best recipe I have found for Creole. It was given to me by a Cajun. You will not be disappointed! (I sometimes substitute frozen peeled cooked shrimp and it comes out great)." — CHRISTYT

Go Saints! Yes I'm from Nawlins myself and this is a good recipe except this way too much roux.That's the amount I use to cook a gumbo for 8-10 people!Try 1/4 that amount and brown it to a light tan color or even darker. Otherwise the end result will be way too floury and thick. I like to used chopped fresh tomatoes, especially in summer. I also add a little dry white wine. If you don't use Cajun seasonings add salt, black and red pepper to taste.PLUS chopped fresh basil and 1/2-1 tsp thymne. Adjust seasonings to taste after the ingredients have a chance to marry. Put your favorite Cajun Hot Sauce on the table.
i served this at a dinner party, people either raved or didnt like it. not because it wasnt good but because it was to spicey for the taste buds. As a person who loves spicy food i gave two thumbs up!!!!!
Wow! Sooooooo yummy! I didn't have 3 pounds of shrimp so I added some chicken breast also... It made so much we ate it all week! And believe me, it was so good I didn't mind one bit ;) I will make this a regular meal.
I love to look for different recipes and this was a big hit, even the leftovers. I substituted cajun seasoning for the salt and chili powder and used only half the tomato paste. I had so much sauce that I refrigerated half of it and made a chicken, sausage and okra gumbo with it a few days later. Just as tasty.
I cut the oil and floup in half. I used two pounds of shrimp and I thought that was plenty. I would add the chili powder and some spice while it is cooking instead of at the end. Overall I liked this recipe and will make it again.
Came out great loved it.. will have it again soon.. thank you Ken
Great recipe. I used it for a Mardi Gras celebration at church and it was a hit. Served 80-90 people. Very easy and fun to make.
