This spicy shrimp dish is delicious over brown rice. Leftover seasoning blend can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Use it to add kick to cornbread, stewed chicken, rice or soups.
To prepare the seasoning blend, combine the herbs and spices in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large saute pan, add oil and heat to medium-high heat. Saute the onions, green pepper and celery until soft and tender, about 8 minutes. Lower heat. Season vegetables with salt and cayenne pepper. Then add tomatoes, garlic and bay leaf. Let simmer about 2 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine the shrimp and 2 teaspoons of Creole seasoning blend. Mix well. In a small bowl, combine water, flour and tabasco sauce. Pour over the tomato mixture in the saute pan. Add seasoned shrimp to pan and cook until pink and tails curl, about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.
