Shrimp creole is one of my favourite dishes, and I remember my father making it when I was a kid. Oh the memories it brings back. This was probably one of the few dishes I first learned how to prepare when I started to cook on my own. Shrimp creole is of Louisiana origin. There are many dishes in this …
