Living in Charleston most of my life gave us ample shrimp all year. I usually cut the shrimp into 3 pieces so that the end result is shrimp in every bite. I now buy the petite cut tomatoes to save time. Enjoy!
- 4 slices bacon, cooked crumbled
- bacon grease (4 bacon strips)
- 2 large onions, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- 1 small bell pepper, diced

- 1 (28 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 (4 ounce) jar pimientos

Great recipe. I love shrimp Creole and this recipe was just right. It was quick easy and tasty. I used the small salad size shrimp, so I didn't have to cut them up and they cooked in just about 5 minutes. So if using the smaller shrimp, you may want to cut the cook time.
