With this recipe for shrimp creole, start with the base and add half of the seasonings (if you do not want it hot) and go from there. To some folks, this could be fed to a baby it's so mild, and to others, they couldn't eat a tablespoon of it.

This recipe contains what Cajuns call the "holy trinity" - celery, bell peppers and onions. If you can, only buy shrimp exactly the way they came out of the sea, put the shells and heads in 2 cups of water and boil down until you get about 1/8 of a cup and add it to the mixture, it will add much more shrimp flavor to the dish.

Ingredients:


  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped

  • 1 tsp homemade onion powder

  • 2 TBS homemade worcestershire sauce
  • homemade hot sauce, to taste
  • homemade red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp homemade Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp homemade chili powder
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions:
