Shrimp, Sausage, & Potato Stew

Shrimp, Sausage, & Potato Stew

I had zero intentions of cooking today. But, good things happen sometimes. It’s June and 87 degrees outside today, but I’m making a stew! Thank God for central air conditioning! 

I like to mix chicken and shrimp stock for this stew. The flavors love each other. Since, this was so impromptu, I only had baby shrimp in the freezer. I was planning to use them for egg rolls, but oh well! Do yourself a favor and use bigger shrimp.


Baby shrimp or not, this stew is delicious! Spicier the better for me! I hope you make it!
