Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, bell peppers, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until softened about 7 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, worcestershire sauce, creole seasoning, thyme, oregano, pepper, cayenne and bay leaf. Simmer with the skillet partially covered, until the flavors are blended and sauce is thickened, about 20 minutes.
Add the shrimp and cook, stirring a few times, until they turn opaque, about 5 minutes.
Remove the bay leaf.
To serve, spoon over rice.
If the sauce doesn't seem thick enough, you can make a slurry by mixing 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch together and stirring it into the sauce before adding the shrimp.Weight Watchers PointsPlus: *9Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints: *5
