Real Shrimp Creole

This is another Cajun dish that is my personal favorite. It has a tomato base along with roux that makes it a hearty meal. It is also served over hot rice as most good Cajun foods are. That is a staple in every Cajun home. My gramma would keep her rice in a big new garbage can with a tight lid. We ate so much of it that when it was on sale and there was a limit she would send all the grandkids in to each get a bag. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
