It’s been a while since I’ve had homemade cajun style shrimp creole. I absolutely love the stuff. I swear It’s amazing, especially when it’s served with hot steamed rice and cornbread…. LAWD HAVE MERCY!! It’s almost like a shrimp gumbo, but without the roux. It is truly one of my favorite southern dishes. It must be some of your favorite dishes as well, because I’ve been getting a TON of request for it. So in this post, I’m going to show & tell you how I make my homemade Shrimp & Sausage Creole.
My version of shrimp & sausage creole is simple. I don’t use any fancy ingredients. I just use the basic stuff. The only ” fancy” thing about this recipe are the tomatoes that I use. I like to use Heavenly Villagio Marzano Tomatoes, as well as Zima tomatoes. Why? because I LOVE the sweetness of the tomatoes… If you have a different tomato that you’d like to use feel free to use it.
2 cans (14 oz (420 ml) each) stewed tomatoes
1/4 pound (120 g) reduced-fat smoked sausage, sliced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 pound (240 g) fresh sliced okra
3/4 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt, to taste
3 cups (750 ml) cooked rice, warm
In 6-quart (6 l) slow cooker, combine all ingredients, except okra, shrimp, salt, and rice. Mix well.
Close cooker and cook on low-heat setting for 6-7 hours, adding okra during last 30 minutes and shrimp during last 10 minutes.
Turn off slow cooker. Serve shrimp and sausage mixture with salt. Serve over cooked warm rice
