Simple Shrimp Creole

  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 8 minutes
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 2 cups Shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2 Eggs, slightly beaten
  • Oil
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 cups Cornflake Crumbs
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Salt, to taste

Shrimp Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Chili Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Pickle Relish
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Egg, hard cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp grated Onion


Beat eggs slightly with water. Dry shrimp on paper towels; dip first into crumbs, then eggs, then into crumbs again. Place shrimp in well-oiled shallow baking pan so they do not touch; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Turn once with a broad spatula so that both sides are oiled. Bake at 450°F degrees in preheated oven 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with shrimp sauce or your favorite sauce. Note: You may prefer broiled shrimp. Follow the same recipe, but cook only 2 minutes on each side under the broiler.

Shrimp Sauce Directions:

Combine all ingredients and chill. Serve in individual dipping ramekins with shrimp creole.
