Baked Shrimp Creole

Shrimp Creole is nothing new to me, but I have never made it baked. We tried this a couple of weeks ago and it was really good! Everyone in the family loved it.

The only thing I did differently in this recipe is make my own Creole spice mixture because it is unavailable here in Taiwan. I actually brought back a bottle of it a few years ago, but I discovered a while back that it had gone bad (yuck!).

I also suggest adding extra shrimp to this recipe. Yummy!

Ingredients

  • 4 sheets Reynolds Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil (12 x 18 inches each)
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can garlic and onion diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pound medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F or grill to medium-high. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine rice, tomatoes, green pepper, celery, onion, Creole seasoning, brown sugar and oregano. Stir in shrimp.
  3. Center one-fourth of mixture on each sheet of aluminum foil. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal package, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make four packets.
  4. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes on a cookie sheet in oven or grill for 8 to 10 minutes in covered grill.
