Russ’ Shrimp Creole

This is our friend Russ’ recipe for a wonderfully easy dish which will appeal to the shrimp lovers. FYI…Russ used to live in Windsor, which is where Larry and I first met him. Since Memorial Day is coming up for our American friends like Russ, this recipe is a little tribute to him and them!

Note that I am putting it in the KISS category, as it is so simple to prepare!

What you need
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 T. butter
  • Smidgen of cayenne pepper or Tabasco
  • 1 T. flour
  • 6 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 pounds of raw shrimp
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
make it
Saute onion and garlic in butter. Blend in flour. Add remaining ingredients except shrimp. Simmer 10 minutes. Add shrimp. Simmer 10 MORE minutes. Serve over rice.

* may need a little more flour for thickening!
