      THIS IS AWESOME DELICIOUS!!! The only thing I changed was instead of 8 oz. clam juice I used 8 oz. chicken broth, 6 TBSP butter instead of 8, about 6-8 garlic cloves (I just LOVE garlic) and I added the green onions towards the end with the shrimp. I had about 21 huge prawns that I chopped each into thirds so there were bite size chunks of shrimp all throughout. I served over white rice. I will definitely make this one a lot. Thank You.

      Outstanding! One of my favorite meals I've made. I skipped the liquid smoke and used (thawed) frozen raw shrimp that my husband shelled and threw in the simmering sauce 6 minutes before it was finished. Otherwise I stayed true to the recipe. Served over jasmine rice with sauteed spinach and king cake for a wonderful Mardi Gras meal. Thanks so much! This will be on the Mardi Gras menu every year :)

      Came across this looking for a crawfish etouffee recipe. Glad I did as the recipe is fantastic! I did substitute crawfish for the shrimp. ;)
