Weekly Recipe | New Orleans Shrimp & Rice

No Sugar No Flour is a weekly series where I share a new recipe that I’ve tried and enjoyed. The only parameters are that it cannot contain added sugar or flour. Take the challenge and …Enjoy!


Remember the list of amazing dinners that we prepared on our vacation to Mexico? This week’s recipe – New Orleans Style Shrimp & Rice – was the meal that Jonathan and I prepared for the group. It isn’t 100% true to the No Sugar No Flour guidelines (there are 2 Tbl of flour for the roux), it was too good not to share.

Shrimp and Rice II

You prepare everything but the rice in a dutch oven – so the roux, the “holy trinity” (it’s a New Orleans thing), shrimp, tomatoes, etc. – and then you serve it over rice and you’ve only dirtied two pots and your cutting board. Pretty nice if you ask me.

So if you’ve been doing well with no sugar no flour so far, I think you can treat yourself to two tablespoons of flour and give this delicious recipe a try.
