  Large shrimp 2 Pound
  Canned tomato sauce 16 Ounce
  Rotel tomatoes 1 Can (10 oz)
  Butter stick 1
  All purpose flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

  Vegetable stock 8 Cup (128 tbs)
  Rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Green onion 1 Tablespoon
  Creole seasoning To Taste
  Tabasco sauce To Taste

As with all Cajun recipes, you start with a Roux. But, first we need to sauté our Cajun Trinity and garlic. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large Dutch oven or 6 quart pot. On medium heat, sauté the Cajun Trinity until vegetables are wilted and tender. Pour into a side bowl and set aside.

For the Roux – melt 1 stick of butter on medium heat. Gradually add ½ cup flour and stir constantly until a light golden color. Carefully mix in Cajun Trinity and stir as to not stick or burn. Add 6-8 cups stock. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes. Add Rotel, tomato sauce, and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning. Simmer another 10-15 minutes. Add shrimp. Cook another 10 minutes.
