Looking for an easy dinner you can have on the table in minutes? Our Easy Shrimp Creole is low on fuss and big on flavor! 

Check out our recipe for Easy Shrimp Creole

Our Easy Shrimp Creole recipe is a quick saute of Louisiana’s Famous Trinity (Onions, Celery, & Bell Peppers) plus a little garlic. Add some tomatoes, wine, and hebs and you have a quick little hot tub for plump pink shrimp to take a swim in! The shrimp only take a few minutes more and while your rice cooker steams your rice (ALWAYS rinse your rice until the water runs clear before cooking), you’ve made a super tasty and remarkably Easy Shrimp Creole to top it with. You’re so good in the kitchen, you smartie!

TIP: We use a Beurre Manie to thicken our sauce without leaving a raw flour aftertaste. It’s simply a paste made of butter and flour and it’s my favorite way to quickly thicken sauces while adding rich flavor. Read more about Beurre Manie from our friends at Saveur Magazine.
