Easy Shrimp/Crawfish Etouffee

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Ellenkjl

This is the easiest etouffee recipe I've ever seen. Buy the shrimp or crawfish already peeled and deheaded to make your time in the kitchen even shorter. Plus, it tastes great!! I usually double the recipe and you can put as much red pepper as you like. You can use shrimp or crawfish. Enjoy.

This etouffee does not taste like etouffee. It tastes like spicy sweet and sour sauce. It was eatable but not great!
