Saucy Creole Shrimp for One

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by YummySmellsca

The flavours of my favourite shrimp jambalaya, but without the rice or okra common to the dish. I actually love this saucy mix on Israeli couscous or even pasta! If you can't find fish stock (I find cubes in Italian markets), use clam juice or vegetable broth. I use Creole Seasoning as my Creole seasoning.

I used Tony Cache red creole seasoning. Way too salty! It was totally inedible and a waste of shrimp! I have always used my own seasoning and could control the salt.
