This was excellent although time consuming. I served it to my husband, two other adults and a teenager, all of whom really enjoyed the meal. I thought it was a bit spicy but they did not. I used McCormick's cajun spice (what I could find) and smoked andouille sausage all served over homemade long grain white rice. This one is a keeper for me.
This was just ok. The flavor was a little flat. It didn't have the body a real Creole shrimp does. It definitely needed a roux. I usually make the Frugal Gourmet's Shrimp Etoufee recipe, and it is a family favorite. I really liked to addition of the andouille that this recipe offered, so I will probably just add the andouille to the Frugal Gourmet recipe.
