Number of Servings: 6


    2 lbs raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup flour
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    2-3 stalks celery, chopped
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1 bay leaf, whole
    1-8 oz can tomato sauce
    tap water


Peel and devein shrimp. Add oil to large saute pan. When hot, add shrimp and cook until they turn pink. Remove to a bowl. Add flour to the oil to make a rather liquid consistency and stir constantly until it becomes the color of peanut butter. When it is brown, add the vegetables, bay leaf and thyme. Stir until all are coated. Cook until tender-crisp, about 5-8 minutes. Stir in small can of tomato sauce and enough water to make it a nice stew-like consistency. Stir well to combine. Add in the shrimp and stir to coat it all with sauce. Serve with rice. Serves 6
