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.
A hearty and spicy shrimp stew with onions, green peppers, celery, tomatoes, and wine. Serve over hot, cooked rice.
I make many dishes for my friends, but the men demand this one time after time. Easy to make and tasty as can be.
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.
A well-seasoned, tomato-based stew of vegetables helps turn some shrimp into a delicious meal inspired by the flavors of Louisiana.
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 is a good, easy recipe and it contains what we old cajuns call the "holy trinity", celery, bell peppers and onions. if you can, only buy shrimp exactly the way they came out of the sea, put the shells and heads in 2 cups of water and boil down until you get about 1/8 of a cup and add it to the mixture, it will add much more shrimp flavor, also, folks outside of the area continue to believe that everything we eat is "hot", when we say "spicy" we mean that our food uses many types of spices, not just chili powder or hot sauce
