Shrimp Creole Meal Prep

Deep DELICIOUS flavors, delivered by our SIMPLE one pan recipe!

You’re going to want to add this into your regular rotation.

Make it for dinner tonight and serve over brown rice or quinoa with a side of broccoli.

I’ve included a FANTASTIC recipe below for making your own creole seasoning mix at home. Double or triple your seasoning mix, and try adding it to your other favorite recipes!

Note: There are many high quality bacon options available these days. Look for nitrate free, and humanly raised if possible. We believe there is a place for everything in moderation, and that we can still live a healthy lifestyle without being ULTRA rigid.


  • 1 tsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 4 nitrate-free bacon slices, chopped
  • 3 bell peppers various colors, chopped
  • 1 large white or yellow onion, sliced
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsps homemade Cajun seasoning mix
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) jar organic tomato sauce
  • 1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails on
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsps chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add in your bacon and cook until crispy, then remove onto a paper towel lined plate to absorb the excess fat.

In that same skillet with a bit of remaining bacon fat sauté your onions, bell peppers, and celery stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes or so. Stir in minced garlic and Cajun seasonings, then continue to cook, stirring for about 1 minute more.

Pour in tomato sauce, then reduce your heat to low.

Simmer until your sauce thickens, stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes or so.

Add in raw shrimp and cook just until pink, about 3-4 minutes.

Taste test and adjust seasonings if desired.

Sprinkle with crispy bacon and fresh chopped parsley.

Serve immediately on a bed of brown rice. Or, allow to cool for meal prep.

Divide your cooked brown rice equally among 4 meal prep bowls and top with shrimp creole.

Keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.
