My husband and I love Cajun themed meals and this is a favorite of ours that we ran across in our local newspaper a few years ago. It's a very spicy dish, but the seasoning could easily be adjusted for milder tastes. Just serve this over rice and add a nice pecan pie or peach cobbler for dessert and you have a great Cajun themed meal. Hope y'all enjoy!
1Using a high-walled skillet, melt butter and bacon grease. Add flour and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until roux turns to a dark beige color (about 25-30 min).
2Add chopped vegetables and Rotel tomatoes. Continue to stir about 15 minutes until vegetables have cooked down. Add the bacon and sausage, white wine and heavy cream. Stir over heat for about 10 more minutes.
3Add seasonings and chicken stock and cook on medium heat for 30 to 45 minutes. Once all ingredients have cooked together, add shrimp and cook until pink. Serve over cooked rice.
