One of the easiest and best recipes for Shrimp Creole that I have tried. Try this shrimp dish served over rice.

• 3 tablespoons rendered bacon fat
• 2 cups chopped stewed tomatoes
• 1/8 cup tomato sauce
• 6 tablespoons minced onion
• 6 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
• 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
• 1 clove crushed garlic
• 1 1/2 cups hot water
• 2 teaspoons salt
• 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 7 ounces frozen, peeled and deveined shrimp

1. In a large frying pan brown flour in bacon drippings. Stir tomatoes, tomato sauce, minced onion, green pepper, parsley, garlic, water, salt and pepper into flour/oil mixture. Bring sauce to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 20 minutes. Add shrimp to mixture and cook 10 minutes longer. (If you use fresh shrimp cook an additional 5 minutes).
