"Great New Orleans style spicy shrimp. I like it hot, and add fresh, hot red peppers. Serve over rice. Crusty bread and ice cold beer are good accompaniments. This is one of my favorite dishes." — SYLVIABC

onion, finely diced
green bell pepper, chopped
crushed red pepper
cracked black pepper to taste
2 1/2 cups
large shrimp - peeled and deveined
This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I prepared it using rock shrimp and it speed up the process since I didn't not have to peel or devein the shrimp.
Not as good as I had hoped. The "gravy" did not form so I used a little cornstarch. Then it was very thick and had little taste. Maybe a more traditional roux would add depth to the flavor. Will try again with a darker roux.
Yummy! I've made this three times and everyone loves it. We like it spicy but if you don't you'll definitely need to ease up on the peppers. Also, I measured all ingredients precisely and I found that there was not sufficient flour to thicken into a gravy. I added a small flour and water mixture just before adding the veggies so that I had the right consistency. (This is no problem for me as I'm more of a 'throw it all in without measuring' kind of cook anyway, which was is just what I did after the first preparation) I found that it took me longer than the estimated times, but maybe the estimate assumes vegetables chopped, ingredients measured and waiting, etc. Also, instead of fish stock, I just took the shells from the shrimp I was already using and made shrimp stock and used that. Maybe it's better with the fish stock but I thought this was delicious and time-saving for me. Give it a try!
It was very easy and very delicious. We are from LOUISIANA!!!
Outstanding! Good luck finding fish stock at the store, so I used vegetable broth instead and it was great. I love New Orleans style cuisine and this fit the bill. I found myself adding a little extra flour and a little cornstarch to thicken the gravy. Thanks Sylvia.
Wow, was this fantastic! We live in Texas and eat alot of Cajun/Creole food and this recipe was amazing. Super easy, quick and once again fantastic. A must try. I just wanted to add we added more hot pepper to make it a little spicer. We have spicy taste.
I would like to tell everyone to limit
with the hotsauce that is all.
This was alright. My hubby absolutely loved it, and I will admit that the shrimp was quite good. I had to substitute jalapenos for the hot red pepper, and I added the spicy carrots from the can of jalapenos. It was good, nice and spicy, but maybe I'd like it better with the red peppers. Color can make a world of difference!
