Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic to pan; cook 8 minutes or until very tender and onion begins to brown, stirring frequently. Place onion mixture in a bowl. Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in pan. Stir in flour; cook 6 minutes or until flour turns a deep rust color, stirring constantly. Stir in Cajun seasoning, thyme, and clam juice; cook for 1 minute. Stir in onion mixture, tomato, and Worcestershire sauce; simmer for 15 minutes or until thick. Add green onions, salt, and shrimp; cook for 6 minutes or until shrimp are done, stirring occasionally. Serve over hot cooked rice. Serve with hot sauce, if desired.
Delicious. I did not have cajun seasoning, so blended 1/4 tsp of paprika, black pepper, and red pepper as a substitute. I also had to substitute some chicken broth for the clam broth. Despite that, it was divine. It has a smoky spicy taste that makes it special.
This recipe was delicious and fresh. It was great even on a hot summer evening. We like extra spice, so I added two more teaspoons of the cajun seasoning and it was perfect for us. I like very thick sauces and this didn't get too thick, so next time I'll add just a little more flour, but the flavors were excellent! I'll definitely make it again.
