What is Carolina Creole®? Both a kitchen staple and an easily prepared gourmet meal, Carolina Creole® is a rich simmer sauce that is small batch crafted and bottled – just waiting to be combined with fresh shrimp, chicken, sausage or sautéed vegetables and served atop rice or stone ground grits. Not to be confused with the creole sauces that pepper the state of Louisiana, Carolina Creole® balances spicy and sweet with an all natural blend of roughly chopped onions, bell peppers and juicy tomatoes simmered with the Luquire family’s signature spices. Carolina Creole® is 2012 NASFT sofi Award Silver Finalist. A sofi Award is the top honor in the $75 billion specialty food industry and “sofi” stands for Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation.
What’s the story behind Carolina Creole®? For almost five decades, the Luquire family has been serving up some of the tastiest creole on eastern seaboard. The recipe hails from Georgetown, South Carolina where the family has cast their shrimp nets and frequented fish camps for generations and found inspiration to create a truly authentic simmer sauce you’ll only find on the Carolina coast.
How is Carolina Creole® prepared? Preparing Carolina Creole® is downright easy. Simply combine the sauce with shrimp, chicken or sausage and simmer in a pan until properly cooked through. Serve over cooked rice or stone ground grits, top with crumbled bacon and dig in!
