Shrimp Creole originated in South Louisiana where gulf shrimp are plentiful. The shrimp are simmered in a spicy tomato sauce and the dish is served over rice. It makes a great one-pot meal for family gatherings or potlucks.
New Orleans Style Shrimp Creole **Not bad, descent flavor. Served over brown rice. I've never had creole before this. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. The only change I made was I used a diced up tomato in place of tomato sauce.
Try a spicy, zesty, delicious taste of New Orleans for dinner this evening. Shrimp Creole is a classic New Orleans recipe; loaded with flavor, it is simple to create, and this is quite possibly the best shrimp creole you will taste outside of Louisiana.
