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!


First things first, you MUST use my Shrimp Stock recipe for this stew.  It’s only right! Store bought Stock is cool, but it just doesn’t compare to the homemade goodness of my rich shrimp stock! Fresh veggies are another must have for seasoning. Leave that frozen stuff out of this! 


This stew is delicious! Spicier the better for me! And make it in advance. It’s 100x better the next day! I hope you make it!
