My DH got this recipe from a true Cajun while visiting an offshore oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Not a typical etouffee, but tasty none the less. This recipe caters to the fact that there are limited grocery options 100 miles from land. Louisiana crawfish tails are the ideal, but Chinese will work as well. Tonys Chachere's More Spice Seasoning is the best Creole seasoning to use.
