Shrimp Creole

Shrimp Creole

This meal takes about 45 minutes to cook, half is prep and the other half is cooking times.  This will feed 6 or more.   I like my food a bit on the spicy side so this had a bit of a kick but not too bad. This was so good with some rice and a portion of bread.  MMMM YUMMY!!

1 lbs. medium shrimp… peeled and deveined

1 green bell pepper… cubed

1 sweet onion… cubed

4 ribs celery… cut into bite size pieces

2- 28oz. cans diced tomatoes

2 bay leaves ( I used crushed bay leaves about a tsp)

2 Tbsp. seafood seasoning

2 Tbsp. garlic… chopped

4 C. white rice… cooked

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. cayenne pepper

Salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste

Depending on how spicy you like your food you may want to try just a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and taste it before you add the full tablespoon.

Heat olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Sauté the onions, peppers, bay leaves, and celery for 4-5 minutes

before adding the garlic, seafood seasoning, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and tomatoes.

Boil for 10 minutes until reduced.

Add the shrimp, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. Remove the bay leaves and serve over rice.

What a lovely meal that was very easy to make.  Bon Appétit!!
