Creole Shrimp

I made this dish a few weeks ago.  I really liked it, so I decided to share it with you guys =)

Original recipe from: Sweet On You

Ingredients:

  • 1 lbs of shrimp (about 40)
  • 2 white onions, diced
  • 2 red or orange bell peppers
  • 1 stick celery, diced
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (or pasta sauce lol)
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

Procedure:

  1. Defrost the shrimp (if it was frozen) and season it with salt and pepper.  Let it sit while you cut up the vegetables.
  2. Dice the onions, bell peppers, celery, tomatoes, and garlic.
  3. Heat oil on a frying pan, and fry the shrimps until pink, about 2 minutes.  Set aside.
  4. Add the garlic, onions, and pepper to the pan and fry until translucent.
  5. Add in the crushed tomatoes (I used pasta sauce), tomatoes, and bay leaf into the pan.  Add also about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water as well. Leave to simmer for about 20 minutes.
  6. Add the shrimps back, and let it warm for about 3 minutes.  Serve! =)
