July Recipe of the Month: Cajun Brown Shrimp Stew

I made this wonderful shrimp dish yesterday and LOVED it. I recommend you do too! Here is the recipe. It's the Recipe-of-the-Month.

Cajun Brown Shrimp Stew

2 lbs med shrimp (cleaned/deveined)
2 cups onion
1 cup celery
4 - 6 green onions (sliced thin)
½ cup oil
1 cup plain flour
2 tbs butter
1 tbs salt
½ tbs black pepper
½ tsp cayenne
2 tbs worcestershire
2 tbs garlic (minced
1 spring thyme
2 bay leafs
3 cups shrimp stock

Make a dark roux with the flour and oil on MED, add onions cook for 5 mins., add celery, green onions, garlic, and everything but the stock, butter, and shrimp. Cook for 10 mins. stirring making sure it doesn't stick. Add one cup of stock, blend well. Add other 2 cups of stock then the shrimp. You add the shrimp after adding the stock, when the mixture is cooler, This way the shrimp wont harden up. Let cook and reduce for about an hour.

Serve over rice with garlic bread.
