I got this recipe from a Coast Guard wife whose husband worked with mine. She was from a tiny town in Louisiana and said sometimes her dad would work for shrimp when it was in season and her mom would make this with some homemade biscuits to go with it. I lost this recipe once, and tried some more elaborate recipes for the etoufee, but this ones is TONS better than any I've tried.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in large saucepan. Sauté veggies until crisp-tender. Add soups & tomatoes. Simmer 45 minutes, then add shrimp, Cook until pink. Serve over hot white rice.

I was a little skeptical that this would be a good recipe for etouffee, but, damn! This is fantastic! And so easy! I'm sharing this on Facebook. Yummo!

I forgot to say the recipes I had called for 2 cans of cream of mushroom instead of 1 as well as fresh celery instead of the celery soup. Thanks again for posting this recipe!! Sheri

I can't tell you how long I have been looking for an easy to make recipe for shrimp etouffee, that doesn't have a ton of ingredients. I love this recipe! I like mine on the spicy side so I added chipotle and chili powder. Also, the one I used to eat was a little creamier than this so I added cream of chicken and milk. Man! It's so good. It's not that much like the one I used to eat at this Cajun restaurant in WV, but it is still very, very good. Thanks so much for uploading this!!!
