Lazy Shrimp Creole

Let’s be honest. This Maine girl doesn’t know much at all about Shrimp Creole. We’ve been eating healthier lately so I can get rid of winter pudge before summer gets here. I’ve been craving something different. Soup and stew is getting old and there’s still too much snow to bring out the grill. This dish is as hot as you want it to be so it’ll warm you up if it’s still winter where you live. Lazy Shrimp Creole is a new favorite.

I feel a little lazy about this recipe. I didn’t spend much time putting it together, and since I loved it from the first try, I didn’t have to make adjustments and make it more than once. This really is lazy easy. shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, lazy shrimp creoleYou can serve this on rice or have it as it is (low carb). If you’d like it a little thicker, stir in two tablespoons of tomato paste.

  1. Eating it now – it’s not hot (something this Connecticut Yankee does not like) but a great blend of flavors

  2. looks very tasty. though in switzerland, i really should not be cooking shrimp, i guess. just my seasonal and regional thinking kicking in….. spring is in full swing here, and the kids were just yesterday commenting about wanting a big bad snow storm, the kind we had years back in boston…..
