Ingredients
  

For the Creole Shrimp

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 24 small shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 tsp Creole seasoning of choice

For the Deviled Eggs

  • 1 dozen hard-boiled eggs
  • 6 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp dried minced onion
  • ½ tsp Creole seasoning of choice (see Notes)
  • 2 dashes hot sauce optional
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 strips bacon cooked crisp each cut into 6 ~1/2-inch pieces
  • garnish: fresh chopped parsley or chives

Instructions
 

For the Creole Shrimp

  • Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet on high heat.
  • Toss the shrimp in the 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning and saute, tossing lightly, until shrimp is opaque and just cooked through. Remove from the heat.

For the Deviled Eggs

  • Remove the eggs from the shells. Split each in half lengthwise, and put the yolks in a mixing bowl.
  • To the bowl with the egg yolks, add the remaining ingredients except the bacon and garnish.
  • Using a fork or hand mixer, mash yolks and combine ingredients until smooth.
  • Transfer the deviled egg mixture to a large resealable bag. Snip off one corner of the bag, and "pipe" the egg mixture into the egg white halves.
  • Top each egg with a shrimp, a piece of bacon, and a sprinkling of parsley or snipped chives, and a light sprinkling of Creole seasoning.

Notes

If your Creole seasoning has salt included in it, season the egg mixture to taste (~1/2 tsp). Remember that the shrimp and bacon will contribute more salt. If your Creole seasoning is salt-free, then you can be more generous.
