I made C's with chicken, since he hates shrimp, by mine was all shrimp, all the way. I go ahead and get the peeled and deveined shrimp from Central Market. I hate peeling shrimp, unless it is the peel and eat boiled shrimp. This recipe is really easy and can be made in 30 minutes or less, pretty good considering.
1 pound fresh medium shrimp
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green sweet pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 teaspoons corn startch
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
2 cups hot cooked rice
Peel and devein shrimp, removing tails. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
In a large skillet cook onion, celery, sweet pepper, and garlic in butter over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in undrained tomatoes, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper. Add the bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
Stir shrimp and parsley into tomato mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 4 minutes or until shrimp turn opaque. Stir in the slurry of corn startch and water. Season to taste. Serve over rice.
