How to make it

  • To prepare the creole: In a medium, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, add the shortening. Add the onion, bell peppers and celery. Cook vegetables, stirring occasionally, until tender, but not brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, tomato paste and bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Increase heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 35 minutes.
  • To prepare the rice: Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the water or stock, rice and salt. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Cook for 20 minutes without stirring or lifting cover. Remove from heat. Fluff with a fork. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Once the rice is done and the tomato base is thickened and the flavors have married, season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and cook just until the shrimp are pink and the flesh is opaque, about 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve on rice with optional hot sauce.
