Ingredients

    1 cup chopped onion
    1 cup chopped bell pepper
    1 clove of chopped garlic
    2 tbps of canola oil
    1/4 cup of flour
    2 1/2 tbps butter ( unsalted )
    1 can of rotel
    1 can of cream of celery ( heathy request soup )
    1 to 2 lbs of shrimp
    8 cups of water
    1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
    add any seasoning of your coice

Directions

First you will want to make the roux. Your going to put the 2 tbps of canola oil and 1/4 cup of four in small skillet. Cook on med. heat . You will need to stir continuously until roux becomes med. to dark brown in color. Remove from heat. Next you will need to add onions,bell peppers, garlic and butter in a 5 to 6 quart pot. You will cook until almost tender. Then your going to add the rotel finish cooking the onion, bell pepper and garlic until liquid is all gone.Add your cream of celery , tomato sauce and 6 cups of water bring to boil.Add seasoning to taste. Then add the roux you made previously from the oil and flour. Stir until unil roux is thoroughly mixed.
Cook for around 20 to 30 mins, stiring occasionally. Taste and add additional seasoning if necessary. Add remaining water return to boil add shrimp and reduce heat. Cook another 10 to 15 mins or until shrimp is done. This recipe make around 12 serving.The serving size is 1 cup.

subnote: The longer you cook before adding shrimp the better the flavor becomes.Make sure you add water as needed. Also you may want to add dried shrimp powder to the gravy this adds more shrimp flavor to it but this will also add calories.For longer cook time make sure shrimp is added nomore then 15 mins before finished,because over cooking shrimp tends to make shrimp rubbery. I usauly cook mine for 2 to 4 hours before adding shrimp.
