    Chef Kate's Note:

    Broussard's--at 819 Conti Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans--may be the most romantic place to eat dinner in all of the United States--especially on a lovely night when you're eating in the courtyard. And this shrimp dish, rich yet elegant, is typical of Broussard fare.

      Forgot 2 things. Add the mushroom stems to the shrimp shells for the cream sauce, and, of course, strain the sauce into the shrimp saute.

      I made this for 2. Added 2 tbl spoons of parmesan at the end. Oh yeah. You right.
      I've made this dish 4 times and it's wonderful. Forgot to mention that I did cut the amount of flour about in half.
      3 years later, I tried this with cooked turkey. Again wonderful. I make the sauce in the microwave and use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of milk and cream.

      DH loved this and I hated it. DH lived in New Orleans for 4 or 5 years. He said I just don't like creole cooking. I am hopelessly a northerner.
