South Louisiana-Yes, it is HOT
This soup is for a family Christmas Party tomorrow. I was already tasked with cooking the Chicken and andouille Gumbo, but I was craving shrimp and corn soup! But Can't cook any shrimp for the main meal because we have some in the family that are allergic to shrimp.....so.....I improvised. Substituted crawfish for the shrimp and added in diced Andouille. I followed the recipe basically

but used all red bell pepper, little more crab boil, little less sherry wine...

Real good. Nice change up to accommodate those with shrimp allergies. Should be a hit at the party. And I made traditional chicken and andouille gumbo for those that don't really care for crawfish.....so all bases covered!

That soup looks like money. Nice job.

Damn Keith! I'd hit that hard. That last shot in the mug looks amazing

Wow, looks so good!!

Nice job Keith, I’d be all over that… So what time is said party? Did you know you have a horizontally challenged redneck relative from SE ID!?! 😉
Thanks guys! This one might be better than shrimp and corn soup....but it is a really tough call. Good change up though.
 
Boy does that bisque look good. Nicely done Keith

Point for sure
Chris
 
That is a pot full of goodness, Keith!! I have your shrimp recipe on my radar already and it is going to happen...

Please clarify why the one family member can't have shrimp, If they are anaphylactic like I am, crayfish will also send them into the hospital with a reaction. A shellfish allergy comes from anything with an exoskeleton, shrimp, crab, lobster, crayfish.

Dunno clifish....I was told they can eat crab, crawfish, and oysters,,,but no shrimp because of an allergy to shrimp. That's all I know.
 
Oh man that’s perfect! Fresh water bugs are the best! Can’t wait to get the pots in the water this spring…..just love them things!

anything is possible, I can eat oysters/clams but they are not considered the same kind of shellfish. Hell, I was taken to the hospital via ambulance 2 weeks ago eating in a restaurant that does not even have shellfish on the menu. The fish I had must have been cross contaminated.

Anyway, make sure they bring benadryl and an epi-pen just in case. Meal does sound good though.
