Delicious Creamed Shrimp over Noodles

 This recipe is soooo easy and delicious!

SAUCE
1 can of shrimp soup
1/2 can water
2 Tb butter + drizzle of olive oil
1 stalk clean celery, chopped
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped (optional)
1/4 tsp Cajun seasoning (add more if you like it zestier)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Sliced green onions for garnish
 
Saute vegetables in butter & olive oil till tender add soup, water and seasoning.  Cook for 3 – 5 minutes to heat thoroughly.
 
CRISPY FRIED SHRIMP
1 lb of shrimp, peeled and deveined (I used frozen that I had found on sale, thawed it under running water, peeled the tails and dried in paper towels)
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper
1 inch of cooking oil in frying pan 
 
Mix flour and seasoning in paper (or plastic) bag.  Add VERY DRY shrimp to coat and fry in hot oil for about 5 minutes, turn half way through.  Shrimp are done when color turns solid.  Making sure the shrimp is dry will cause a crispy coating.
 
Serve over a bed of cooked noodles or cooked rice with your favorite vegetables on the side.  Garnish with green onions.
I kept the sauce and shrimp separate until served because I really liked the shrimp crispy.  If I added it to the sauce for too long the coating turns soft.
 
Serves 4 generous portions
