How to make it

  • In large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Saute leeks, garlic and celery for 5 minutes. Add flour and stir to coat vegetables. Cook 2 minutes. Add chicken broth a little at a time so that the flour and broth blends well and does not lump. Add parsley, cajun spice, marjoram, sherry, salt and pepper and cook on medium for 15 minutes. Add Tasso and cook for 30 minutes on low-medium heat. Add shrimp and cook 15 minutes. Stir in warm whipping cream which has been warmed on low for 5 minutes or in a microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and continue to cook 5 minutes.
  • I serve this with toasted French bread rubbed with a little garlic and a drizzle of olive oil .

    Sounds wonderful. (Now, if I could omit the Cajun spices, it would be even better :-P )
