    alligirl's Note:

    Posted from "Every Day's a Party" by Emeril Lagasse; posted for ZWT 5. From the intro to the recipe - "Shrimp stew is practically a staple dish in the area of Louisiana known as Acadiana, in the southern part of the state. Old time cooks garnished the dish with chopped hard-boil eggs. If you can, purchase shrimp with the heads and tails intact so that you can use them to make a stock. (In a pinch, you can substitute 1 quart of chicken broth.)"

    bowls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel the shrimp and reserve the shells and heads.
    2. 2
      Refrigerate the shrimp and put the shells and heads in a large saucepan. Add the water, quartered onion, bay leaves, and 1 tablespoon of the salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat and strain through a fine-mesh strainer.
    4. 4
      Discard the peelings and set aside the shrimp stock.

      This is a wonderful shrimp stew. I made exactly as written and it reminded me so much of the stew my Maw-Maw used to make! I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe!

      I like this a lot. It is much like a shrimp gumbo without tomatoes and okra. I am eating it now, and I will probably get more. I took every shortcut in the book with this. I used Tony Chachere's instant roux mix, you just add it in the liquid and mix it in. I also used 1 box of seafood stock and 1/2 box of chicken broth. Then it simmered for about 2 hours. I also used frozen peeled and deveined jumbo-gumbo sized shrimp--didn't even thaw. I will definitely make this again. Ohhh, smoked sausage would be good in this. Hmmm....Made for Everyday's a Holiday TAG
