Creole Seasoning and Fiesta Shrimp

I made a cool shrimp foil packet recipe Friday night and needed some Creole Seasoning. Now i remember buying a bottle at some point for some other recipe i was going to make, but for the life of me i could not find it. I do have a vague recollection during one of our moves saying – well if i haven’t used it yet…  Which of course does me no good when I’m 1 ingredient away from dinner being complete.. Hello internet… So i found the following, i didn’t actually make this whole thing, i just sort of used the shake method, more of 1, less of another and it turned out great!  

Creole Seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons Cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
I used it in this recipe from CL. We pared down the shrimp to 1 pound and split it between 2 pieces of foil. Next time i’ll split it between 4 or more and try different spices in each one! It makes a bit of a sauce which would be good on rice, but we just ate out of the foil instead – mmmm!

Fiesta Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, divided
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) preshredded Mexican-blend or cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup drained canned whole-kernel corn with sweet peppers (such as Green Giant)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

Preparation

  1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a bowl mix shrimp, seasoning and olive oil
  3. Prepare multiple pieces of foil. Arrange shrimp in the center of a aluminum foil.
  4. Top shrimp with cheese, corn, and beans; sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning. Fold opposite ends of foil together; crimp to seal.
  5. Place foil packet on prepared grill; cover and cook 10 minutes or until shrimp are done

The shake method is my favorite way to go! The seasoning sounds absolutely delicious and was probably better than that mix anyway!

Looks great..can I use cooked shrimp and cut down on the grilling time? Have you tried it with cooked shrimp?

yes- i use the pre-cooked ones from costco. I defrost, then squish under paper towels, cutting board and a book! That would be the 10 min time.
