READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Chef Louisiana Girl

South Louisiana, cajun, flavor This is a VERY easy recipe. I grew up in south Louisiana and have eaten Shrimp Ettouffe in the finiest restaurants in New Orleans. It is SO good! I made it for my extended family last Christmas at our pot-luck buffet meal and it was the first dish that was gone. This recipe is delicious served with hot french bread and a salad. It is my husband's favorite meal! It can be easily be doubled or tripled to feed a large crowd.
