Kathy Taylor, 1976 graduate of St. Mary's Academy


2 Pounds medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
1/2 Pound smoked sausage thinly sliced (optional)
2 Cans Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup
1 Small onion chopped
2 Toes garlic finely chopped
1/2 Green bell pepper chopped
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 Rib celery chopped
2 Stalks green onion chopped
1 Capful Zatarain's Liquid Crab Boil
Cayenne pepper, salt, and granulated garlic to taste

Add a little olive oil or cooking oil to a medium sized heavy pot.
Over medium/high heat, saute the seasonings and sausage until onions caramelize.
Add the 2 cans of golden mushroom soup and 1/2 can of water.
Stir until smooth. Bring to a low boil.
Let simmer for 5 minutes, then add shrimp.
Stir, return to low boil, and cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Now, if you want your "stew" a little thinner, add a little water. If you like your stew thicker, just add another can of soup. I also add a capful of Zatarain's liquid crab boil to kick the flavor up a notch.

Serve alone or over rice accompanied by hot garlic bread.
