Louisiana Shrimp Creole II Recipe
Tomatoes and shrimp cooked up with garlic and onions - this Gulf Coast tradition will have you dreaming of the bayou. This recipe can either be a main dish or a side dish. You can make it as hot as you want, just add more chili powder and hot sauce. Serve over hot rice.
This recipe was easy and fairly fast. I followed the recipe as printed, but thought there was too much liquid and it needed more hot sauce. I will make it again, but with a few changes: more spice (cayenne?), less tomato sauce and chop the vegetables into larger pieces so they don't disappear into the sauce when cooked.

This is an excellent dish that my mother makes. It has lots of vegetables in a thick Creole sauce. If you wish, you may also put sliced cheddar cheese on top before baking.
My husband's grandmother came to visit and requested I make or take her out for shrimp creole. She is a VERY hard to please woman and I had never had it, let alone made it. I followed this recipe to the T and it was a HUGE hit! She is still raving about it months later. For my husband and I we now add a little more chili powder, hot sauce, and a bit of cayenne to spice it up, but even without the spice it has a super yummy flavor!
This WAS easy to make, and since I was peeling my raw shrimp anyway, I decided to take THEDAD's suggestion to make a stock from the shells. I also used a bit of fresh ground black pepper, and about a tablespoon of dried parsley (but I also needed to double the recipe). My family of finicky eaters LOVED it! I will definately make this again, even if I take some's suggestion to use cut up chicken breast pieces to save a little $$$$.
The 2T of cornstarch is too much. Both my husband and I thought the sauce was too thick. I'll try it again with less cornstarch next time.
