We never would have thought we'd be sharing a creole style dish because you know—Italian Cuisine and Louisiana Creole Cuisine are pretty different! But, we have a passion for good food, and Shrimp Creole is just too tasty to pass up! So we've found a way to incorporate our Classic Marinara into this amazing dish. Let us be the first to say it's not your traditional shrimp creole, but we think it's a pretty darn delicious take on the dish!
