Shrimp Creole

February 12, 2018 Adrienne Brown 0 Comments

Traditionally this dish is made with quite a bit of butter, but I have parted with that.

Instead, I saute my vegetables with olive oil cooking spray or olive oil.

Because I have never used a lot of butter my kids never missed it. But they do miss when I do not cook this dish for a while and they actually request it.

So here is my grandmother’s recipe with a little less butter.


1. 1 to 2 pds -of rope smoke sausageIMG_1705

2. 1 -bag of medium raw shrimp

3. 2 -fresh tomatoes or 1 can of diced tomatoesIMG_1707

4. 1 -12oz can of tomato sauce

5. 1 -4oz can of tomato paste

6. 1 fresh lemon

7. ½ cup of Green onion & ½ cp diced celery & ½ cp sweet red peppers

8. 1 cp of parsley

9. Seasonings: about 1tbsp Garlic powder, Onion powder, paprika & salt

about 2 tsp of cayenne pepper, black pepper & crushed red pepper. Really, you have to season to your taste.


1. Spray pan, let the oil get hot, spoon vegetables into the pan, saute veggies until wilted, releasing the flavors

2. Add sausage cook until slightly browning

3. Add tomatoes and sauces, stir well

4. Add lemon juice, stir, cook until everything is bubbly

5. Add shrimp at the last 5 minutes or so. Stir well. Do not overcook shrimp

Serve over steaming hot rice. Since I use a lot of pepper already, I omit the hot sauce. Most of my family members end up putting hot sauce in it anyways!

There you go, I hope that you enjoy my recipe, make sure you let me know if you decide to try it!
