Louisiana Shrimp and Tasso for Hedonists
Recipe courtesy of Jyl Benson
Serves 6 to 8
Melt one stick of the butter in a heavy pan, preferably cast iron. Add the onions and Tasso and sauté for 1 minute. Add flour and whisk until incorporated.
Do not allow mixture to brown.
In a separate sauce pot heat the stock until boiling and add it to the flour mixture along with the remaining stick of butter. Cook over high heat until the butter melts and whisk in the cream. Add Creole seasoning to taste.
Lower heat to medium, add the shrimp and cook until they turn pink, about 2 minutes.
