Fat Tuesday is right around the corner and this is the perfect time of year to make one of my favorite New Orleans recipes, Shrimp Creole. If you are giving up meat for Lent — or you just want a simple new recipe to enjoy seafood — this is a great option.
When I make it at home, I often start the rice in my rice cooker and have the entire dish assembled and ready to eat by the time the rice is done. This is a great recipe to make when company is coming. Thanks to the vegetables in the rich, tasty sauce you don’t need as much shrimp and it really is a low stress dish to make!
