* 1 teaspoon garlic salt or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder may be substituted.
Chicken, rabbit or crawfish may be substituted for shrimp.
Stove top version if you don't have a crock pot. Sauté celery, onion and bell peppers in oil or butter until tender. (Better if left a bit crunchy.) Add remaining ingredients except meat being used. Simmer at least 30 minutes to an hour. Add shrimp or whatever meat you wish and simmer 30 minutes more.
This is even better reheated the next day.
