    4. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and let it simmer for 20 minutes
    5. Remove from heat and strain. Set stock aside.

    Etouffe:
    1. In a large dutch oven or heavy bottomed saucepan combine melted butter, oil, and flour until smooth.
    2. Cook on medium heat, stirring continuously, for about 10-12 minutes, until you have reached the desired color.
    3. Add the onion, green bell pepper, and celery and cook for 8-10 minutes - stirring frequently
    4. Add garlic, thyme, and bay leaf- continue stirring for about 2 minutes
    5. Throw in the tomatoes, worcestershire sauce, paprika, and creole seasoning and let it cook for 5 minutes
    6. Gradually pour in 2 cups of the shrimp stock, bring to a boil and let it simmer. Add the shrimp, simmer for 5 more minutes. You may also season the shrimp with creole seasoning and saute it for about 5 minutes instead of boiling it in the pot.
    7. Adjust the thickness/flavor of the soup with more broth or water, hot sauce, and salt.
