Spice up your life with this Zesty Shrimp Creole! It'll have the party started at the first bite.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound unpeeled, medium-size fresh shrimp (about 35 per pound)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (14-1/2-ounce) cans Cajun-style stewed tomatoes, undrained

What to Do

  1. Peel and devein shrimp; set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; sauté onion and next 3 ingredients until tender. Add tomatoes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp.

  3. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Serve over warm cooked rice.


Yup, there are ways to make this recipe even quicker. You can ask your grocer to peel and devein the shrimp for you. (You'll only need about 3/4 pound of the already peeled shrimp, if it's sold that way.) Try using frozen onions and green bell peppers instead of chopping fresh ones. And last but not least, prepare quick-cooking rice to make your life even easier. You'll be amazed how quickly you can get this on the table!
