Easy Shrimp/Crawfish Etouffee

This is the easiest etouffee recipe I've ever seen. Buy the shrimp or crawfish already peeled and deheaded to make your time in the kitchen even shorter. Plus, it tastes great!! I usually double the recipe and you can put as much red pepper as you like. You can use shrimp or crawfish. Enjoy.

    This etouffee does not taste like etouffee. It tastes like spicy sweet and sour sauce. It was eatable but not great!

    We really enjoyed this easy and flavorful recipe. I added a half cup of chopped green pepper with the celery and onions. Also, my shrimp were already cooked, so I added them for just a minute or two at the end to heat through.

    This was very good. I tried it as written and my husband liked it. The second time I used fish filets instead of the shrimp and it was equally as good. Thank you! Margie

    This was super easy to make, and it was very tasty. I used white onion, but next time I will try the green onions. This was great with rice or mashed potatoes!
