How to Make Mike's Shrimp Creole & Bayou Swamp Sauce

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 23 steps you must follow to make Mike's Shrimp Creole & Bayou Swamp Sauce in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Chef's Note:
  • Step 2
  • Other than the brining process, do not add any additional salt to this dish. The Lemon Pepper, Hot Sauce, Creole and Old Bay Seasonings will each have plenty of sodium within them.
  • Step 3
  • FOR SHRIMP BRINE
  • Step 4
  • Add 1 cup hot water, 4 tbs kosher salt and 3 tbs granulated sugar to a plastic bowl. Mix well until completely dissolved.
  • Step 5
  • Place uncooked, frozen shrimp in bowl and add 4 cups of ice to it. Brine should be at 36° - 40° to be effective. Also, add just enough cold water to totally cover shrimp.
  • Step 6
  • Your shrimp are now dethawing and brining in this mixture. This method will plump your shrimp and lend that delectable fresh snap to them we all crave.
  • Step 7
  • Allow shrimp to brine for 2 hours.
  • Step 8
  • Following brine - preheat oven to 350°
  • Step 9
  • FOR VEGETABLES, SPICES AND BAYOU SWAMP SAUCE
  • Step 10
  • Fine chop bell pepper, celery with leaves, garlic, white onions, chives, parsley and juice half lemon.
  • Step 11
  • Also, slice pre-cooked Andouille Sausage into bite sized pieces at a slant or angle.
  • Step 12
  • In a large pan with tight fitting lid, place all other ingredients [except for shrimp, garnishments other lemon half] and simmer 1/2 hour stirring regularly.
  • Step 13
  • In the last 15 minutes of Step #8, bring your 2nd pot with water and 1/2 squeezed lemon to a very rapid boil. Leave lemon half in pot.
  • Step 14
  • Add shrimp for 3 minutes. Drain shrimp in strainer immediately and quickly run cold water over shrimp to halt the cooking process.
  • Step 15
  • Quickly peel shrimp and add to simmering Bayou Swamp Sauce. Let simmer on low for 2 minutes. Your shrimp will absorb the Creole seasonings as they tighten up. Stir occasionally.
  • Step 16
  • Serve with sides of Tabasco Or Louisiana Hot Sauce and garnish plate with fresh chopped Parsley and Chives.
  • Step 17
  • Chef's Note: Make certain you stir this dish well before serving each bowl. If not, all solid ingredients will sink to the bottom of the sauce pan once motion has stopped. At that point, all the oil from the butter will rise to the top.
  • Step 18
  • FOR YOUR GARLIC SPREAD
  • Step 19
  • Evenly slice French Bread into 3" thick slices.
  • Step 20
  • Mix all ingredients in the Garlic Butter Seasoning category together very well. Slightly heat in microwave if need be.
  • Step 21
  • Place bread on cookie sheet butter side down. Lightly sprinkle bread slices with Paprika for both color and spice if desired.
  • Step 22
  • Bake 15 minutes at 350° or, until they're crispy and golden brown. Be careful to not over bake.
  • Step 23
  • Enjoy!
