Shrimp Creole


I love seafood, especially when it is fresh and flavorful. Shrimp dishes are among my favorites to order in seafood restaurants. Sometimes I forget just how easy it is to create great seafood dishes at home. This Shrimp Creole is great comfort food. It is a little spicy, but you can adjust the heat to your liking. I love this over rice, although it is delicious served over your favorite pasta too. When I am watching carbs, I serve this over brown rice and it is quite filling.


Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter
3 cloves garlic minced
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can spicy stewed tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 dash hot sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons Chili powder
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 Bay leaf
1 pound medium shrimp peeled and  deveined

Directions

In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, bell pepper and chopped celery. Saute until softened (5 minutes). Stir in tomatoes, tomatoe sauce, all of the seasonings and the Bay Leaf. Bring to a boil stirring frequently.  Add Shrimp and cook for 4-5 minutes until bright pink and cooked through.

Bon Appetit!
