Shrimp Creole (Slow-Cooker)

We love dump and go recipes !  What could be more convenient ? I admit there is one more step, but that should hardly count.

Add the Shrimp 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time and cook until done.

Shrimp Creole (Slow-Cooker)

Using a slow-cooker to cook is always a joy and I especially love my Chili Cowboy Casserole, which is a huge family favorite with everyday ingredients.

We are seafood junkies ! I try to work fish, a mussel pot etc, into our weekly menu as much as I can.

Making the Creole sauce in the slow-cooker, needs no attention at all, simply let the sauce simmer and all the flavors combine slowly, but deliciously.
