New Orleans Shrimp Creole

Recipe by Izzy Knight

This is my "superbowl fancy food" for my husband. I got the recipe from a Mardi Gras party. Great over rice or with hot buns.

This was fabulous! Sauce thickened up to consistency of tomato paste during 20 minute simmer, but waited it out to add more liquid as you add 1/2 cup wine at end. It was still a bit thick after that so I splashed in about 1/4 cup more chicken stock. Also, I added more Tabasco and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red chili pepper while sauce was simmering. Easy, quick and very tasty!

  4. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, stock, vinegar, mustard, Tabasco sauce, salt, and pepper.
  5. Return bacon to pan.
  6. Simmer over medium-low heat, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add wine and shrimp and cook until shrimp turn pink, about 5 minutes.
