I have never had Joe's Crab Shack etouffee before so I cannot judge the recipe by their dish. I thought, overall, that this dish was good -- I used chicken and jalapeno sausage to make it more spicy. However, it did not taste like etouffee recipes I am accustomed to. We served this dish over rice as suggested and it was a nice meal. I served it along with Creamy Bruschetta. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
