  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, NOT drained
  • ½ cup chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • 1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp (I used “extra large” 16-20 count per pound shrimp)
  • For serving: cooked rice; chopped fresh parsley
  1. Fry bacon in a large skillet or Dutch oven (about 5 minutes). Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked bacon, but leave the drippings in the pan.
  2. Add bell pepper, onion, celery and garlic to the skillet with the reserved drippings. Cook over medium-high heat, just until soft (about 3-4 minutes). Add tomatoes, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Reduce heat to low; simmer until thick, stirring occasionally (about 7-10 minutes). Add shrimp and cook just until pink (about 5 minutes). Serve over rice and garnish with cooked bacon and fresh parsley, if desired.
