Shrimp Creole For The Day.
You are going to love this delicious one-pan shrimp creole recipe. Make sure you add it to your regular rotation.
My belief is there is a place for everything in moderation, and that we can still live a healthy lifestyle without being ultra-rigid.
Note; make sure you look for high nitrate-free quality bacon.
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 SERVINGS.
1 tsp olive or avocado oil
4 nitrate-free bacon slices, chopped
3 bell peppers of various colours, chopped
1 large white or yellow onion, sliced
4 celery ribs, chopped
4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp homemade Cajun seasoning mix
1 (14.5 ounces) jar organic tomato sauce
1 lb raw shrimps, peeled and deveined, tails on
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leafs
2 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add in your bacon and cook until crispy, remove onto a paper towel-lined plate to absorb the excess fat.
In the same skillet with a bit of remaining bacon fat, sauté your onions, bell peppers and celery stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes.
Stir in minced garlic and Cajun seasonings and continue to cook, stirring for about 1 minute more.
Pour in tomato sauce, reduce the heat to low.
Simmer until your sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes.
Add in your raw shrimp and cook until pink, about 4-5 minutes.
Taste Test and adjust the seasonings if desired.

Serve immediately on a bed of brown rice. Or allow cooling for meal prep.
