Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups onion, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 2 green peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 - 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water

  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 3 cups hot cooked rice

Method

Step 1

Cook onions in butter for a few minutes then add celery, green peppers, and garlic. Cook until onion is tender.

Step 2

Add tomato sauce, water and seasonings. Simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes, adding a bit more water if it becomes too dry.

Step 3

Add raw shrimp. Heat to boiling. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes longer, or until shrimp are pink but still tender.

Step 4

Serve over cooked rice.

Put the pot of water on for the rice and by the time the rice is cooked, so is the rest of your dinner!

I just love easy dinner recipes like this.

The Creole part is the heat from the cayenne pepper.

This recipe is gluten free, low carb and perfect as part of a diabetes diet. As a diabetic recipe, instead of serving it with a lot of rice, eat a bit of brown rice if your blood sugar can tolerate it, and add lots of vegetables to the plate.
