“Adapted from the Southern Comfort Recipe site, with a few changes. One pound chopped smoked ham can be substituted for sausage. For a stronger tomato taste, add 1 small can of low-sodium tomato paste with the chicken stock. You can also use boiled rather than raw shrimp to save some trouble. I'm somewhat guessing at preparation and cooking times. I almost always cook with low-sodium ingredients and let people add salt at the table, if desired; however, this need not be made with low-sodium ingredients if you prefer otherwise.”
