  • Add the next four ingredients (through bell pepper) to the Dutch oven. Cook and stir 7 to 10 minutes or until onion is tender. Add the chicken broth and potato. Bring mixture to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or until potato is tender. In a small bowl whisk together the cream and flour; whisk into Dutch oven. Cook and stir about 3 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat; stir in the shrimp and remaining Cajun seasoning.

  • Drop Cornmeal Dumplings in 10 mounds over the mixture. Cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (don't lift lid during cooking). If desired, sprinkle with parsley.

DIY Cajun Seasoning

If you're out of Cajun seasoning, swap it out for Creole seasoning or mix up a batch of your own: Stir together 2 Tbsp. each packed brown sugar and paprika; 1 Tbsp. kosher salt; 2 tsp. each dried oregano and thyme, crushed; 1 tsp. each garlic powder and ground cumin; 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper; and 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper.
