Very good, you can't tell the creme of Mushroom soup is in there, just "streches" it without compromising flavor and I might add, from a born and bread Louisianian, roux does not belong in Etoufee, good recipe!

This etouffe has almost no flavor. Because roux adds a rich flavor I can't understand why it is not in this recipe. Where is the celery? Why in heck mushrooms? Add garlic, black pepper, white pepper, onion pdr., garlic pdr. thyme, paprika, etc. This has little resemblance to the great etouffes of Louisianna.

Very good, very easy recipe. I made this for my son's birthday dinner and it was a hit with everyone. Made a few changes by adding some Tony's and I also added some thickener at the end of cooking but only because of personal preference.
