“I love all different colors and flavors of peppers. This recipe gets some of its "heat" from Poblano pepper and the rest from the cayenne. My son Mark loved this!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the spices and set aside.
  2. In a heavy cast iron skillet heat the oil, add flour and make a roux – stir the oil and flour over medium heat until almost mahogany colored. This process will take a little while.
  3. Add the vegetables except the parsley all at once. Add half of the spices and mix. Remove from the heat.
  4. Mix the remaining spices with the raw shrimp. Put the skillet back on the flame and add the shrimp. Stir until they begin to turn pink. Add chicken broth gently and simmer until bubbling quietly.
  5. Add the butter a small dollop at a time and shake the pan to amalgamate into the sauce. Don’t stir too much as the sauce could separate. Add the parsley, reserving 2 TB for garnish. Turn out onto a rimmed shallow bowl and top with reserved parsley. Serve over steamed rice.
