Smoking Shrimp Creole

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/8- 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chili
  • 3/4 pound small or medium shrimp, shelled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked long-grain brown rice
Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion, pepper, celery and garlic until the onion is translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, bay leaves, paprika, and chipotle chili. Simmer the sauce, covered, until it is thick, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring it 2 or 3 times. Add the shrimp and cook, uncovered, until they are pink and firm, 5 to 7 minutes, depending on their size. Season to taste with salt and pepper*. Serve over cooked brown rice.
