How to make it

  • In large frying pan, heat oil over moderate heat until almost smoking.
  • Add the flour and whisk until it's the color of peanut butter, about 3 mins.
  • Whisk in the broth and continue whisking until the roux starts to thicken, about 2-3 mins.
  • Stir in the bell pepper, celery, onions, salt, cayenne, black pepper and thyme. Drop in the bay leaf.
  • Bring to a simmer, cover and cook over low heat until the vegetables are tender, about 15-20 mins.
  • Add the shrimp and scallions, simmer until the shrimp are done, about 3 mins.
  • *You may substitute 1-2 cups of shredded, cooked chicken for the shrimp.
