Recipe Directions for Shrimp Creole

  1. Remove shells and veins from shrimp-or cut chicken into 1 1/2 inch cubes. In a deep, heavy pan, add onion plus about a Tablespoon of water. Cover pan and sweat onions on low heat, stirring occasionally, adding additional water to keep onions from sticking and burning. When onion is wilted, add mushrooms and gradually raise heat to medium as mushrooms begin to cook and give off their moisture. Once mushrooms are wilted and any liquid from them has evaporated, add garlic and celery and cook for about 1 minute. Add peppers and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, wine and rest of seasonings except parsley. Simmer approximately 30 minutes, adding water as necessary.

  2. After the sauce has simmered 30 minutes, add washed shelled and deveined shrimp to the pan and cook approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to allow shrimp to cook evenly. When shrimp are uyniformly pink, sprinkle with lemon juice, mix, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
