I grew up eating shrimp Creole. I used to say my mom put it in my baby bottle. It was a staple in our home. My family had this often and my mother made the best.

Served over rice, this is a rich and savory shrimp dish that is good for any occasion. I hope you enjoy it. It always brings back warm and fuzzy memories to me.
