DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a 4-quart non-stick saucepan over high heat; add the onions, bell pepper, and celery and saute for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, jalapeno, bay leaves, ground peppers, and garlic, stirring well; cook about 3 minutes and stir often.
  • Stir in the stock, sugar and salt and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until flavors are married, about 20 minutes, stirring often.
  • Turn the heat up to high, and when the sauce is boiling, remove from heat.
  • Add in the shrimp, push them down in the sauce, cover the pan and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Remove bay leaves.
  • To serve, mound 1/2 cup cooked rice in the center of each serving bowl, then pour about 1/2 cup sauce around the rice and arrange 8 shrimp on the top of the sauce.
  • Serve with a cool beverage of your choice-- you'll need it!
