Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 heaping cup shrimp creole ove 3/4 cup barley)

This tangy seafood dish has a New Orleans flair. If you like a little spice, add a dash of cayenne pepper to the seasonings.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a medium-size saucepan with a lid, bring 2 cups of the broth to a boil. Add the barley; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a large skillet with a cover, sauté the celery, pepper, onion, and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes, or until soft. Add the tomatoes, the remaining broth, and the seasonings; simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the shrimp; simmer, covered, for another 5 minutes, or until the shrimp are cooked through (pink and opaque) and the sauce has thickened. Serve over the barley.
