Shrimp Creole originated in South Louisiana where gulf shrimp are plentiful. The shrimp are simmered in a spicy tomato sauce and the dish is served over rice. It makes a great one-pot meal for family gatherings or potlucks.
Though it may sound very fancy, étouffée is French for "smothered" -- and generally refers to a sort of stew in which the main ingredient is cooked in a rich gravy and served over white rice. Here shrimp take the center role -- a dish that is perfect for a big gathering.
Perfect for your next Potluck dinner...these peppers are stuffed with a mixture of ground beef, sauteed eggplant, and Louisiana trinity, then topped with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Serve with hot white rice.
