Shrimp again! Remember Miss Lucy from PBS? I shared her Shrimp Casserole and Dirty Rice that I wrote down from her show. Well, recently I bought a box of cookbooks from an auction just because I saw her cookbook and several of Justin Wilsons. This past week I tried her Shrimp Stew.
It was VERY easy to make. It had to be simmered for a short time which I was a little worried about because I didn't want the shrimp to overcook but I decided to follow the recipe to the "T" and it worked out fine.
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup oil
1 quart water
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
2 pounds peeled shrimp
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
Brown flour to make roux. Gradually add water, then add onions and bell pepper. Allow to slow boil for 30 minutes. The gravy should be thick. Add shrimp, salt and pepper and chopped green onion tops. Medium boil for 20 minutes. Turn off heat and serve. Serves 4-6
I served mine over rice.
