How to Make Shrimp Creole

Step-by-Step

  1. In large, heavy pan melt butter. Sautee onion and garlic until tender. Add celery and bell pepper and cook until softened.
  2. Add tomato paste and cajun seasoning and cook until paste has browned somewhat. Add in romas and shrimp and cook briefy, until shrimp just turns white.
  3. Add in shrimp stock, bay leaves and green onion. Simmer about 10 minutes, long enough for the bay leaf to do it's work and soften the shrimp.
  4. Serve over hot creole rice.
