Being of Cajun decent, we grew up eating Shrimp Stew. It was a hearty, cheap meal (hard to believe). I remember sitting with my siblings and mother, cleaning the shrimp.

As the oldest of 8 children, we had a lot of helping hands, but a lot of mouths to feed.

Shrimp Stew goes a long way but it is oh so yummy!
