My Mother-in-Law gave this recipe to my husband, who tweaked it and made it his own. I think it is just awesome - and so easy to prepare. I beg him to make it for me when I start to go through withdrawals.

How To Make gary's easy shrimp creole

  • 1
    Saute the chopped onion, pepper, and celery in olive oil over medium high heat until tender.
  • 2
    Add garlic and Shrimp and cook for 2 minutes or until shrimp is just turning pink, but not fully cooked. (Over cooking the shrimp will make it tough)
  • 3
    Add pepper, pimentos, canned tomatoes with their liquid, tomato soup and the 1/2 can of water. Stir all ingredients together and continue cooking for 5 minutes until bubbly and shrimp is cooked completely.
  • 4
    Spoon over cooked rice and serve.
  • 5
    We always use the mildest level of canned tomatoes with green chili's because they are still quite spicy. It's what gives this dish the punch it needs. We use Rotel's but any brand will do. Also if you can't find uncooked shrimp just add 1 lb of cooked, peeled shrimp right near the end just to heat it through.
