Directions

  1. Melt butter over medium heat in a deep frying pan. Stir in diced ham and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in red bell pepper, celery, white portions of green onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in Cajun seasoning and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in flour; cook and stir until flour is no longer gritty, about 3 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and Worcestershire sauce; increase heat to medium-high. Simmer until vegetables are soft and liquid is reduced and thick, 10 to 15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. Stir in shrimp; cook and stir until shrimp are cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste. Garnish with green parts of green onions.

Wish I could give 4 1/2 stars. Very simple to prepare with a good combo of flavors....just not over the top. Just enough "zip" to make it interesting. Only thing I added was a little more garlic (because there is no such thing as too much garlic) and a splash of kitchen bouquet to enhance the gravy. Otherwise I follwed to the tee and served over creamy grits. Husband and son were pleased!
