Shrimp Creole IV

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This is RIDICULOUSLY good. It looks like a lot of work but really isn't. And is sooo worth it. There's a lot of cooking time where you can do other stuff inbetween. I did not put it on the rice as in the picture, but just ate it as a soup. I bet the rice would cut down the spice. I like spice, but there is a lot in this! When I give it to my boyfriend I'm sure he'll complain there's not enough ;) I *mostly* followed the recipe to a "t"...uhm, the shrimp I bought came peeled already so I had no shells to save...so I just cut up a couple shrimp and stuck them in instead. I also didn't feel like making bacon for the bacon grease, so I put it cooking oil and some liquid smoke. Smelled AWESOME, and definitely tastes good. I would probably put more in next time (I kinda eyeballed it, so, I maybe put in 1.5 tsp?) I think this would also be good with chicken in it. Thanks for the recipe, definitely a keeper!! EDIT : Whoops, I forgot. I also put the shrimp in during the last 15-20 minutes of cook time and eliminated the last step.
