~ Shrimp Creole ~ My Way

Cassie *


I had some shrimp I needed to use and some green pepper and celery about to expire....so, this is what I threw together. I only had enough shrimp for a few helpings, but the recipe could easily be doubled. So tasty and easy! Season to your own heat tolerance...mine was just right for us!
