Summer Shrimp Creole

Summer Shrimp CreoleC hates all things seafood. Lucky for me, Miss F loves shrimp. So whenever C is out for the evening, I try to cook something with shrimp for Miss F and I. This is a new recipe of my own invention using fresh summer zucchini and tomatoes. I am not a huge fan of the celery traditionally found in Creoles and the zucchini is so much nicer with the tomato and bell pepper. I am going to try the zucchini for celery swap the next time I make Jambalaya 'Marylaya.'  I am so happy to have a little girl who loves to eat shrimp as much as I do, only problem, she steals them from my plate!
Summer Shrimp Creole

1 pound fresh shrimp, peeled and de-veined
½ medium onion, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon corn starch
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons snipped green onions
2 cups white cooked rice

In a large skillet cook onion, zucchini, tomato, and bell pepper in butter over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds more. Stir in canned tomatoes, paprika, salt, cayenne pepper and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Whisk together the corn starch and water in a small bowl, stir the corn starch slurry and shrimp into the tomato mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes or until shrimp turn opaque. Salt and pepper to taste, serve over white rice and sprinkle with green onions.
