Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Looks like a good recipe. I was born and raised in south Louisiana. Creole cooks I know don't cook with red pepper, if you want the heat, add it at the table. Also, all my recipes, except sweets, start with chopped onion, celery, and bell pepper. Celery adds the salty flavor, without added salt. Submitted by:

Missed the kick from Andouille Sausage, but didn't miss the added fat and sodium, so here's to health! Anyone know if turkey cutlets cut up would work, as far as taste goes?

I really loved this dish. I found it needed additional spices (really, it needed a dash of sea salt), but other than that I stuck with the receipe. To make it colorful, I used yellow and green bell peppers. Its a generous portion too! Submitted by:

Can also make this with white fish or chicken. Can substitute canned diced tomatoes for the tomato paste/sauce/vegetable stock. I use Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning as it's easier than using the individual spices. Use less rice & more veggies for fewer calories. Submitted by:

This is really good! Perfect amount of spice. I've been looking for a quick & easy shrimp creole recipe and this one fits the bill. If you want, you can add the Andouille sausage (like pictured) but it would add quite a bit more fat & calories. Submitted by:

Just a note to those of you concerned about the cholesterol in the shrimp...remember that your body needs some cholesterol to function, and your body produces it's own as well. They are a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids as well as Vitamin B-12, both protectors of the heart and arteries. Submitted by:

Could the calorie count on this dish be right? It has very little oil
and 1/2 cup of rice is only about 100 calories. It would be a dish I would try as it really sounds good.

I'll bet this could be made like a gumbo, by throwing all ingredients into a slow-cooker and eliminating the oil. I'm trying to figure out where all the calories are coming from. Too much rice, perhaps? Regardless, I'm interested in trying this. Submitted by:
