Shrimp Creole

By Marsha Gardner mrdick1950


I was making a Mary Kay delivery about 35 years ago to a customer and she was cooking this Shrimp Creole for dinner. It smelled so good I had to ask for the recipe.

Picked up the ingredients on the way home and fixed it for our dinner that night. It has been on the menu here in the Gardner house ever since.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Saute bell pepper, onion and celery until tender in olive oil. Add garlic and saute for 2-3 more minutes.
2
Add tomatoes and seasonings and simmer until thick, 2-3 three hours.
3
Add shrimp just before serving. They will turn pink as soon as they are done. Don't allow shrimp to boil or over cook as they will become rubbery and tough.
4
Serve with rice, salad and a good crusty bread to sop up all the wonderful juice.
