  • 3 heaping tablespoons roux
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 bell pepper (chopped)

"Soak the dried shrimp in hot water for 15-20 minutes. Add 2 quarts of water to a tall pot. Bring to a boil. Add the roux. When the roux dissolves add the next 7 ingredients and the shrimp. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Add boiled eggs and parsley."
