Cajun Shrimp Stew

Cajun Shrimp Stew

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/3 jar roux
  • water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • Tony Chachere's all purpose seasoning
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1 handful chopped onion tops
  • 1 handful chopped parsley
  • 2 cups rice cooked rice (more or less)


  1. In a Dutch oven pot combine water & roux. Mix well and let mixture come to a boil then reduce heat.
  2. At this time you can adjust the roux or liquid if you need extra. You want this sauce to stick to your rice.
  3. Add the onion, bell pepper and celery. Cook down until veggies are soft...I like to cook down (continually cook on low fire) my roux about an hour or so.
  4. Add the clean shrimp and cook until shrimp are pink, 5 to 10 minutes more, season well. Turn off heat and add the onion tops and parsley.
  5. Serve over hot rice.
  6. If you can not buy pre-made roux Make a Roux!
  7. Combine the flour and oil in a heavy skillet or cast iron pot.
  8. Cook over medium heat, stirring continually, until the mixture is brown as a copper penny.
  9. The aroma can be smelled a mile down the road. Add to this, the Cajun Trinity (onion, bell pepper, celery); 2 pods of garlic are optional.
  10. Sauté until onion has wilted.

You can also serve with boiled eggs MM mm mm talk about good yea.
