Wow, we recently were in Phoenix and found a great New Orleans restraunt (Pappedauex?). LOVE IT. THIS IS OUTSTANDING!!!!! My family loved it my 16 year old son said to make it next time his friends come over. I had only a 1 lb bag of crayfish (and needed to double it). I doubled all the ingrediants and then added a pound of shrimp. As we like our food "spicy" I doubled the cayan and added a 1/2 a diced raw jalepeno to the veggies while sauting. This will be a new "staple" in our house (whenver I can find the crayfish). Thanks Luby
Being born and raised in Louisiana and on Cajun Cuisine, it takes a really good recipe for me to write a review. Talk about easy. I cheated and bought the trilogy of vegetables so I didn't have to do the chopping so from start to finish, this recipe took only about 30 minutes. Rice was cooking while I was preparing this. And, it was even more delicious than it was easy. I used leftover crawfish from our Good Friday crawfish boil so I eased up on the seasonings, but I will use this over and over again. Next, I think I will try it with shrimp.
A TEN STAR recipe for sure!!!<br/>This is a fantastic recipe....it is almost idetical to my late sister's mother-in-law's recipe. Effie was Cajun and raised a large family with wonderful recipes like this. My sister sometimes "extended" the recipe with crabmeat or shrimp, and usually added a Tbls of tomato paste or ketchup to the sauce. She used Tony Chacere's seasoning (of course!!!), & hot sauce to taste. Yummmmm!
This was REALLY good and easy. Really Really Good!!! Thanx!!!
With "leftovers" from our Memorial Day crawfish boil, this was my first attempt at etouffee. My family LOVED it! I used Tony Cachere's seasonings instead and some chicken broth when I added the crawfish (extra juice to soak up with garlic bread). We also tried putting this over grilled trout and redfish - WOW!!
Awesome recipe! I live in SW Louisiana and have many etouffee recipes. This is the best as well as easiest! I had a crowd for supper so I used 4 lbs of crawfish and 4 times everything else and still was perfect. As a timesaver I used the chopped onion mix from Sam's Club and Tony's Seasoning to make it even easier. Everyone loved and asked for the recipe -- the highest compliment.
Believe it or not this is the first dinner I haver ever cooked that was not a frozen pizza or ravioli. This is simple and delicious. My whole family loved it. I highly recomend it. I just follwed the recipe the way it is.
My family and I went crazy over this recipe! Even my 3 year old daughter kept saying "Thank you for this nice food!" It is absolutely delicious.
I wish I could give this 10 stars. I can't believe it's never been reviewed! For any of you out there that are skeptical about making this dish, don't be. It's extremely easy and absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a single thing. The only advice I can give is to stir quite frequently while simmering. I can't tell you all how great this is. Try it. You will not be disappointed. Thanks for a great recipe, Luby. This is sure to become a staple in our house.
