1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup of chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup of chopped celery
4 tablespoons of oil
1 3/4 cups of 36/40 peeled and deveined shrimp
3 1/2 cups of water
3 tablespoons of flour
1 tablespoon of liquid browning sauce (like Kitchen Bouquet)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Saute onions, bell peppers and celery in oil; add shrimp and simmer five minutes on a low heat. Add three cups of the water and bring to a boil. Mix flour and one-half cup of the water until it is smooth; add to the shrimp mixture. Reduce heat and continue stirring until thoroughly mixed; add liquid browning sauce and simmer 15 minutes. I like this served over steamed white rice.
