Fantastic dish! It's very spicy, which my family loves, but others should beware. I used canned chicken stock instead of making the shrimp stock and I still thought it was excellent (and much faster!).

Good stuff!! I only had 2 lbs of tiger shrimp on hand, so sub'd 1 lb of chicken breast (cubed), adding it halfway thru the 1-hour covered simmer. Can't buy good tomatoes now, so used 2 cans (15oz) Diced Tomatoes in Sauce and 1 can (15oz) Tomato Sauce. Used 1-1/2 tsp salt. I know how much fire is in 1 tsp of cayenne, so to please the family I cut cayenne down to 1/4 tsp, Tabasco to 1/2 tsp. Still had a good ZING! Served with rice. Leftovers were even better the next day. Thanks for a great recipe, Stefanie!

VERY GOOD! I DID OF COURSE, MAKE A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS. INSTEAD OF TOMATO SAUCE AND 4 TOMATOES, I USED 1 LARGE CAN OF DICED TOMATOES AND 1 6OZ CAN OF TOMATOE PASTE. ALSO, WHEN SAUTEEING THE ONIONS, GARLIC, CELERY ETC, I ADDED A CUT OKRA. LASTLY I ADDED SAUSAGE TO HAVE A MORE MEAT VARIETY. OVERALL A GREAT RECIPE. WILL MAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN, I'M SURE! THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!!!
