    I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet - it is a big go-to dinner for me. I love it as written but now I generally cut back on the cayenne for the picky toddler/preschooler in my house. I generally add some kind of sausage and I don't add the shrimp until about 5 minutes before the end. If I'm in a hurry, I use a frozen cajun-style mirepoix rather than chopping my own veggies.

    Wow, great recipe, and very easy to make (especially since I had my hubby shell the fresh crab and prawns)! I made it almost exactly as the recipe says but I had no white pepper and used canned tomatoes. Still was awesome.

    Excellent recipe! I've mad the dish twice- once with shrimp and once with crawfish tails. Each time the etouffee was delicious!

    WOW...SO YUMMY! You've got to try this Louisiana favorite. I substituted Tony's for dry spices, used chicken broth, a little prepared mustard and a whole lot of Tabasco(kids were at g-ma's). Sadly, the store had only imitation crab (b-yuck). Why do they even make that stuff? I bet it's out of this world good with lump crab meat.

    Shrimp Ettouffe'... Sounds like a difficult dish to make but it's not. It was quick and easy. I made it exactly as shown using chicken broth and no crabmeat and the flavor was true to it's Creole roots with just the right amout of heat. The family loved it. This recipe is a definite keeper! I plan on using it to impress my friends at a dinner party. "Shrimp Ettouffe'". I won't tell them how easy it is to make. Thank you for posting this Lisa
