Valentine Creole Shrimp on Biscuits for Two

Creole Shrimp on Biscuits for Two

Ingredients:
1 pound of shrimp, de-veined
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks of celery, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. margarine
1 large can of ready-made biscuits (or your favorite recipe)
(I use Grand's)
2 cans of cream of shrimp soup
1 cup half and half
Creole seasoning (McCormick’s)
Garlic powder to taste

In a large saucepan, heat margarine over medium heat.
Add the chopped onions and celery to the saucepan and
cook them until very soft.
Pour in soup (do not add water). Cook on low heat for about 5 minutes.
(While waiting, heat oven and cook biscuits as directed.)
Add half and half and cook another 5 minutes.
When soup is done, add chopped shrimp and cook for another 15 minutes.
Save a few shrimp for presentation.
Season to taste with Creole seasoning and garlic powder.

Make a shallow "lake" of the soup on a small plate
When biscuits are done, split in half and arrange on the plate.

Slice reserved shrimp in two length-wise.
Arrange two of the halves on top of each biscuit to form a heart shape.
Spoon shrimp soup into center of the “heart” and drizzle more in a diagonal over the top of the biscuit.

is there a special reason for using margarine for sauteing the veggies? also, i'm wondering about the 15 minute cooking requirement for the shrimp?

Do you mean as opposed to butter or oil ?
whatever floats your boat.

the shrimp is chopped; it's not going to toughen up; it will practically shred itself.

Why don't you just try it as written, then make any adjustment.............
that usually works for me..............

I planned on making this but couldn't find the soup. What brand? I wound up making a bechamel and added chopped/whole shrimp.I also added the seasoning to it. I liked it but I would like to find the soup and try again.

I wonder if it's only regionally available, I couldn't find it in any of the stores I wandered today.
