Servings: 6Prep Time: less than 10 min Cook Time: approx 20-25
2 sticks celery, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 large onion diced (less if you don’t like onion much)
1-2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 can tomato paste
2 cans diced tomatoes (with added herbs or plain)
1 1/2 cans water
1/2 small bag frozen okra (optional)
1 small can corn (optional)
salt & pepper (or use creole seasoning to taste)
1 10-16 oz bag salad shrimp or any shrimp deveined and shelled.
Dice the celery, bell pepper, and onion into small pieces. Saute in 1-2 Tbsp butter or margarine until onion is clear. Move mixture to “soup” boiler if you didn’t start it there and add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, water, okra (if using), corn (if using), and salt and pepper (or creole seasoning). Cook until okra is almost done and add shrimp. Continue to cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring if necessary. Eat as is, or over rice with french bread.
