  • 2 pounds shrimp, shell on (remove shells for use in the shrimp stock, if not making your own stock, you can get shrimp already shelled)

Steps

  • Pour 2 quarts of water into a pot and add all the remaining stock ingredients. Bring to a boil, drop the heat down and simmer the stock gently for 45 minutes. Strain through a fine-meshed sieve into another pot set over low heat. You will have extra stock, which you can use for soup, risotto, etc. It will last in the fridge for a week. 2 To make the etouffee, start by making a roux.
  • Heat the vegetable oil or lard in a heavy pot over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the flour well, making sure there no clumps.
  • Let this cook, stirring often, until it turns a pretty brown; this should take about 10 minutes or so.3
  • Add the celery, green pepper, jalapeno and onion, mix well and cook this over medium heat for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. 4 Slowly add the hot shrimp stock, stirring constantly so it incorporates. The roux will absorb the stock and seize up at first, then it will loosen.
  • Add enough stock to make a sauce about the thickness of syrup, about 1 pint.
  • Add the Creole seasoning, celery seed and paprika and mix well.
  • Add salt to taste, then mix in the shrimp. Cover the pot, turn the heat to its lowest setting and cook for 10 minutes. 5
  • Add the green onions and hot sauce to taste.
  • Serve over white rice with a cold beer or lemonade.
