Shrimp Creole

Recipe by Elizabeth Fullerton

This was my all time favorite meal growing up. My mom always made this on my birthday.

I have eaten Shrimp Creole at a few places in New Orleans including a great place righ off Burbon street near the Acme Oyster place. This is NOT Shrimp Creole. That being said, it is interesting over rice but I discovered that it makes an AWESOME spaghetti sauce. The next day after making it we made spaghetti and didnt have any sauce. Feeling adventurous (and not wanting to waste the shrimp) I mixed the sauce with the spaghetti and everyone loved it. So, Shrimp Creole it is not but a decent spaghetti sauce it is.
