If you love heat, you're gonna love Shrimp Sauce Piquant. Piquant translated from French means literally "pricking" and that is what this spicy sauce piquant is meant to do, prick the tongue.

Simplicity is what makes up a Cajun Shrimp Stew - a simple light roux, onion, sweet bell pepper and a few seasonings is all there is to it!

Authentic dirty rice usually contains gizzards & livers, or some other form of giblets, but don't fret if you don't like them. You can simply increase the beef or pork and still have a wonderful meal. Take it easy on the Cajun seasoning though - add a little, taste and adjust!

    Liver keeps it moist, a lot of people replace the liver with cream of mushroom soup.

    For whatever reason, my Mom always added a can of diced tomatoes to her Dirty Rice. I liked it growing up and have done the same. My two sons cleaned the pot and still ask for it when they come for a visit now that they are adults.

This recipe was wonderful with one note. It is intended to be made and consumed immediately. In other words, don't try to make it in advance and reheat or hold it. Instead, cook it just before you intend to serve it, and then serve it hot and direct from the oven.
