- Add cayenne pepper and salt.
- Add shrimp stock (about 1 quart), and bring to simmer.
- Add green onions and simmer covered about 30 minutes, stirring occasianally.

- Note: to make stock, simmer shells from 2 pounds of 31 - 40 shrimp in about 2 quarts of fresh water and one 6oz can of tomato paste. Simmer for about 8 hours and reduce with the cover off durring the last hour or so until it's reduced by about a third or more.Just strain about a quart of it directly into your etouffee when you're ready for it. To further intensify the flavor you can raost the shells and tomato paste for a few minutes, in the bottom of the hot, dry pot before you add the water. Just keep the tomato paste moving around so it doesn't burn. Use med - low heat. Maybe just a bit of oil if you're using stainless steel so it doesn't stick.
