Chef's Tip

Because shrimp cook so quickly, it’s easy to overdo it. Luckily, you can readily see when they’re done: translucent and limp when raw, shrimp curl up to become firm and opaque when heated. The smaller the shrimp, the faster they cook, so watch them closely once they’re tossed into the pot.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup [1½ cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the rice cooks, prepare the vegetables and cook the shrimp Creole.

2

Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Trim the ends from the celery; cut the celery in half lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper. Cut the pepper lengthwise into ¼-inch-wide strips, then crosswise into ¼-inch pieces.

3

Cook the shrimp Creole

  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [4 to 5 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, celery, bell pepper, and tomato paste, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, Creole seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, ½ cup [¾ cup] water, and as much cayenne as you like. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the sauce is thickened slightly and the vegetables are just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the shrimp and cook until firm and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
When the shrimp Creole is almost done, prepare the scallion garnish.

4

Prep the garnish

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal.

5

Serve

Transfer the rice to the center of individual bowls. Spoon the shrimp Creole around the rice, sprinkle with the scallions, and serve.
