Peel shrimp. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp and wash out vein.
In a 4 quart pot heat olive oil, and 1 tablespoon of margarine or butter. Then add onions, celery, carrots and garlic.
Add all seasonings. Once onions begin to turn translucent add the peppers. Cook until peppers become tender.
Make a well in the center of the vegetables then add remaining butter and flour into the center.
Stir flour and butter until they become a paste. Incorporate the paste into the vegetables.
Once the mixture begins to turn brown gradually add the shrimp stock.
