Shrimp Creole (WW)

Submitted by: BELLATROTTA

Introduction

6 Points. We gave our creole extra sizzle by using hot, smoked Spanish paprika. If you can't find it, use ground, smoked chili powder instead. 6 Points. We gave our creole extra sizzle by using hot, smoked Spanish paprika. If you can't find it, use ground, smoked chili powder instead.

    It is an ok base recipe. Maybe I expected too much because I love spicy and I didn't find it to be. Ended up adding cayenne pepper and jalapeno juice so it had some heat. - 1/17/09

    Excellent recipe. I realized once I was well into it that I didn't have tomato paste, and I never seem to have scallions on hand so those two items were left out. It was still excellent. I ate it without the rice so I could have closer to 3 cups of it - 1/16/09
