Shrimp Creole I

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a delicious, very easy, quick but moderately expensive recipe. Everyone I've ever fixed it for absolutely loves it! I've also included crab and/or scallops in this recipe. Serve over rice.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • In a dry frying pan, heat flour; stirring constantly over medium heat about five minutes or until brown. Mix butter or margarine into browned flour. Stir in tomato paste, onion, salt, chile pepper, stock, bay leaves, thyme, and parsley. Simmer for approximately twenty minutes.
  • Add shrimp; cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until shrimp have all turned pink.
