2 teaspoons olive oil

1½ cups frozen chopped onion

1½ cups frozen chopped green bell pepper

2 tablespoons flour

¾ pound peeled raw shrimp

¾ cup frozen peas

1 tablespoon Cajun easoning

Salt and ground pepper

4 ready-to-bake biscuits from refrigerated biscuit dough

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix tomato paste, honey and 1 cup water; set aside. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion and pepper until defrosted. Stir in flour and tomato-paste mixture. Simmer to thicken. Stir in shrimp, peas and seasoning. Cook 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to an oven-proof casserole about 6 inches across and 3 inches deep. Take biscuits and stretch each to about 3 inches across. Place close together over top of pie. Bake 15 minutes. Biscuits will rise and turn golden brown. Serve.
