Cooks note: Glenn showed me how to make my shrimp stock out of a little liquid, the discarded shrimp shells, some diced celery and onions together with a little salt and pepper seasoning. In a medium saucepan, cook it up for a little while then drain it all through a strainer into a bowl. Pretty cool, huh?

Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from my next door neighbor, Glenn. He's quite the character and a lot of fun when he's around, which isn't very often because he and his lovely bride, Cheryl are always traveling to some exotic place. He also happens to be a retired executive chef and author of a few cookbooks so when he's traveling he's doing a little research. He's also a native of Mississippi and a former resident of New Orleans... so he knows his Cajun cooking! This is his award-winning version of the classic Jambalaya recipe.
